Hurricane Ike: Familiar Face thanks to Direct TV


Ike Slams Texas 

It is really a nifty service for viewers if you are following Hurricanes. Direct TV puts up a local tv station coverage of the storms on channel 361. Direct TV had WDSU, New Orleans live during Gustav, now they are carrying KHOU, Houston. I really like coverage from the local stations because they give you a better picture of what is going on simply because the reporters are knowledgeable, know the geography, and frankly have more of a stake in the unfolding drama.  And then a bonus: Dr Neil Frank, well known in Miami as the former director of the National Hurricane Center was on air. Frank recently retired as KHOU’s Chief Meteorologist. The FSU grad was back in the saddle as Ike approached and was on air most of the night.  Neat to watch a pro at work.
