One day after its Oct. 25 launch, the free Fox Weather ad-supported streaming service is ranked No. 1 on the Apple App Store chart. The third Fox News-branded over-the-top video platform after Fox Nation SVOD and Fox Business International, Fox Weather features comprehensive forecasts, 3D radar, Fox Weather Wire and Fox FutureView, among other personalized user options.
The streaming service hit the ground running as major weather conditions gripped parts of the country, including the Nor’easter and California’s first major winter storm, called the “bomb cyclone.”
Meteorologists Jason Frazer and Britta Merwin along with Stephen Morgan kicked off the live programming as co-anchors on “Fox Weather Sunrise.” Meteorologists Amy Freeze and Craig Herrera took over with live coverage of the developing weather systems as co-anchors of “America’s Weather Center.” Dancing meteorologist and social media star Nick Kosir helmed coverage later in the day on his show, “Fox Weather Wild.”
The Fox Weather team of meteorologists spent the past weeks rehearsing at its New York headquarters, home of the Fox News Channel, which recently celebrated its 25th anniversary.
“Those are two of the main reasons why I decided to take this opportunity,” Freeze told Fox News Digital. “There is an appetite out there that the Fox platform is going to deliver to people, and that’s very exciting. To be a part of that from the beginning, what an opportunity.”
