NBC Miami O&Os power up new radar
The new system will give the stations more precise forecasting abilities than the existing network of radars in the region.
The new dome is mounted atop the stations’ Miramar studios along Interstate 75. Both stations are owned by NBCUniversal.
The stations’ sister station in New York City, WNBC, debuted a similar system earlier this year.
The station group also invested in a small fleet of “StormRanger” mobile radar vehicles, which are shared on a regional basis by various NBC O&Os, last year.
It’s worth noting that the “6000” branding used by WTVJ is reminiscent of WNBC’s old radar name — “Doppler 4000.”
