Rain drops are falling on my head…

I’m no meteorologist, but I think this is a bad sign when clouds look like this. #fugly

How KTLA’s Liberte Chan used social media to showcase common sense #CAWx

Looks like KTLA (CW affiliate) made the news again.

Correction: KTLA IS the news.

Anchor Chris Burrous said “We are getting a lot of emails.”

Errrrr, perhaps a different on air line would have been more appropriate. I am thinking that the on air/broadcast decision and handing her a cardigan was a poor choice.

KTLA’s Liberté Chan initially changed out of her original outfit because it got “keyed out” – or rather, didn’t work well with the green screen and the weather report colors. She changed into a black tank dress, writing on Twitter, “Even if it’s early in the AM, can’t beat a black beaded dress.” However, apparently her new glamorous look didn’t go over well, leading to Weekend Anchor Chris Burrous to hand her a sweater in the middle of her weather report.”  – Maria Mercedes Lara (@maria_mercedes)

Here’s how Liberte used FacebookLive, YouTube, and other behind the scenes videos to show viewers the real story behind the wardrobe choice.

More importantly, how accurate are her forecasts?

Liberte-don’t apologize. Give good weather info.

C’mon people. Stop being so delicate.
