Judge’s Comments:

The starting clip of the coverage from the meteorologist put things in perspective – gave listeners a general sense of the situation and where they should avoid driving. The reporter coverage was excellent, very visual and a good tone in the sense of urgency. I thought the coverage overall was really impressive and most importantly, informative.
