Most Memorable Story:

Two come immediately to mind. The first was during tornado coverage in July 2021. On a day where several tornadoes touched down in central and southern Michigan, we were forced to take shelter while on the air as a funnel cloud passed over Saginaw where our studios were located. There was no touchdown in Saginaw, but other towns in our viewing area sustained serious damage from other tornadoes.

The other was also tornado coverage on March 14, 2019. Severe weather season in Michigan typically peaks in June and July, but we were forced into coverage for 4 tornadoes that would touch down that evening. These were winter tornadoes, occurring just a week before the official start of Spring.
