Freeze Hits The Weather Channel (Updated)

This morning, FTVLive reported FIRST that cuts have been made at Sam Champion's AMHQ (the story was stolen from us a couple hours after posting with no attribution by a website that lacks any type of ethics what-so-ever). 

On a followup to that story, sources tell FTVLive that a freeze has also hit The Weather Channel and it has nothing to do with the temperature.

Insiders tell FTVLive that a hiring freeze has been implemented at TWC.

Word is that bosses put the freeze in place after an awful last quarter performance. 

We hear that many inside the Weather Channel are hoping for a major weather event (i.e. hurricane) to help the network out. 

Even the American Bald Ego himself, Jim Cantore is getting grumpy because the lack of a big event.

Stay tuned.... 

Update: A Weather Channel spokesperson tells FTVLive that there is no hiring freeze and that the company currently has a number of jobs posted.
