The Weather Channel

If you’re worried that your photos of snow-covered patio furniture will no longer be televised after KUSA-TV anchor Kyle Clark pleaded with viewers to stop sending them in, The Weather Channel has a message for you.

“We don’t feel that way here at The Weather Channel,” host Matt Sampson says. “We love your patio furniture. It’s a convenient photo op for you, and gives us a great idea of weather conditions in your area.”
