Weather Channel to Air Movies

(from the Associated Press)

The Weather Channel plans to show movies for the first time in its 27-year history.

First up? The Perfect Storm.

The network has slipped longer programming into its constantly rotating forecasts in recent years. But over a four-week period starting the night before Halloween, the cable network will try Friday night movies.

Its managers figured the George Clooney movie about a horrific storm off the New England coast would be a good first choice — particularly since it's airing on the 18th anniversary of the actual event.
