    It’s happy. Maybe too happy for South Louisiana.

    • Chad says:

      I understand – South Louisiana can have some extreme weather! The song can be about showcasing your weather talent and how viewers can connect to your station’s weather information via various multi-platform devices and apps. Weather information is a daily part of a viewer’s routine – in addition to those severe weather days.
