Touch Screen Weather Bulletins in Africa!

After months of development and testing the touch-screen interface for our 103" Plasma television was launched last night during my PrimeTime Weather Bulletin in Africa. This is a one of a kind system that features some of the latest technology available in Weather Broadcasting. I am happy to have been a part of its development.

A job well done to my weather staff @ and, the software developers in Berlin, Germany (MeteoGraphics) and the "U-Touch" team in London. A collaborative effort to make a dream come to reality.

Thank You.
