Many people have reached out to me thanking us for launching NBC Region 8. But some of you also reached out to me with concerns. The week of January 26, 2015 our 24/7 weather channel became Region 8's very own NBC affiliate in high definition.
Some people miss the radar, weather information and newscast replays. Taking down weather 24/7 was the topic of some very spirited conversation here at KAIT and it was a decision we didn't take lightly.
To serve you, we made sure to have radar, the Region 8 Storm Team forecast, replays of our newscasts, live streaming on kait8.com and your mobile device 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Some of our viewers told us they don't have internet. I'm here to tell you that if the tornado siren blows or there is a massive severe weather event or breaking news, we will be there for you on both the ABC channel and the NBC channel.
We are Region 8, and that is our commitment to you.
