Fox Weather, an ad-supported streaming weather service, will launch Oct. 25. The new platform also hired veteran WABC-TV meteorologist Amy Freeze as an anchor.
Fox Weather will be available at foxweather.com and through the Fox Weather app for iOS and Android. It will also be available on Internet-connected TVs via Fox Now, the Fox News app, and Tubi.
“We have been working toward this moment for the last nine months and are thrilled to debut Fox Weather with our talented and innovative team, including Amy Freeze, whose versatility and decades of experience are a great addition,” Fox Weather president Sharri Berg said in a statement.
Utilizing the linear channel’s expansive news gathering units, along with Fox Television Stations’ team of 120 meteorologists, Fox Weather will offer users a comprehensive suite of weather products featuring local, regional, and national reporting, in addition to live programming and forecasting — the latter using multiple radar systems, including 3D.
A five-time Emmy award-winning meteorologist and television host, Freeze joins from the ABC owned and operated station WABC-TV in New York. Since 2011, she has been part of the station’s “Eyewitness News” weather team, where she also hosted Saturday and Sunday morning shows.
