When severe weather in Connecticut is imminent or ongoing, FOX61 Chief Meteorologist Rachel Frank and the FOX61 Weather Watch team will be heard on the Audacy Connecticut stations, in addition to their extensive severe weather reporting on FOX61 and its platforms. The partnership will also feature on-the-scene reporting for radio listeners from members of the FOX61 News team.

The launch of the FOX61 Audacy Hartford Severe Weather Network is planned for Dec. 1.

“This new and critically important network will provide important and potentially lifesaving information to the people of Connecticut no matter where they are," said FOX61/CW20 President and General Manager Humberto Hormaza. “The audience can watch on television on FOX61, stream on FOX61+ and the FOX61 news app, or listen on the four Audacy Connecticut radio stations.”
