Some of those people may have retired from TV. You must have an active seal to display it on TV. I believe it depends on how much times lapses between when you stop paying for the seal and when you want to reactivate it. You may have to pay preexisting dues or even take the test again.
Interesting! I suppose its not a critical thing to have? I noticed Al L. Roker on that lists. A little surprising to me since he isnt a meteorologist and has a high profile show airing soon. Thanks for the reply and info!
The seals are important....to an extent. Some news directors look at weather as "entertainment". That's how most of my management (higher ups) looked at it too. People like Al are TV personalities....not professional meteorologists. News directors don't care why
you watch, only that you watch for as long as possible.
So the answer to the question is yes and no depending on the news director / general manager of the station.
