This means soon you will be able to get your Weather Channel’s Local Now updates as part of Cheddar’s free news services. Cheddar will also continue to offer its content to The Weather Channel’s Local Now streaming service as apart of this deal.
“The big national weather stories are of great importance and interest to our audience, and The Weather Channel has amazing coverage and visualizations, where they dive deep, literally, into the pertinent weather event to present a realistic viewpoint. That’s compelling content,” said Jon Steinberg, Founder and CEO of Cheddar. “As Cheddar has scaled, launching Cheddar News last year, and our new morning show Wake Up With Cheddar a couple weeks ago, it’s great to be able to turn to our friends at The Weather Channel to expand our partnership.”
