SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwired - Oct 6, 2014) - WeatherNation TV, Inc., a multi-format, local, regional and national television weather news service, announced today its partnership with ABC4 Utah to broadcast 24/7 weather news on Salt Lake City's digital TV channel 4.3 and on area cable systems across Utah. 

WeatherNation TV currently delivers reliable and current local, regional and national weather programming in multiple cities across America, including Atlanta, Boston, Minneapolis, Seattle and Denver and is expanding its reach rapidly.

"We are thrilled to expand the coverage of Utah's most accurate weather team with an extension of Utah's most complete local, regional and national weather coverage with WeatherNation Utah," said Richard Doutre Jones, General Manager of ABC4 Utah and Utah's CW30. "Providing this terrific new weather channel, which will include our award winning meteorologists, will further enhance our Good4Utah commitment for all Utahns."

"Our weather is always changing, so the timing is perfect to team up with WeatherNation to provide our viewers the most in-depth weather coverage on channel 4.3," said Dan Pope, chief meteorologist for ABC4 Utah. "Many people already watch our PINPOINT WEATHER Interactive radar on 4.3, and now we are producing even more local weather information and updates every 10 minutes, plus regional and national updates from WeatherNation."

"WeatherNation brings world-class technology and additional professional talent that will provide more of the quality weather coverage viewers have come to expect from Salt Lake City's ABC4 Utah PINPOINT WEATHER," said Michael Norton, president of WeatherNation. "Our knowledgeable team of meteorologists provides around-the-clock coverage of breaking weather and forecasting."
