“We’re very pleased with our continued ratings successes at 10pm,” says WHO-HD President and General Manager Dale R. Woods. “Viewers have told us it’s about choosing good stories and telling them well. It’s about a team you like and trust. And more than ever, it’s about a commitment to Iowa weather. That’s why we’ve expanded our team to 5 full-time meteorologists, have the only 24/7 weather channel and mobile apps to warn and inform with live streaming.”
