National Weather Service marine forecast products are available though a number of different mass media outlets including radio, TV and newspapers. Rebroadcasts of NOAA Weather Radio is often performed on cable TV channels, either directly or as a Secondary Audio Program (SAP).  Scrolling of NWS text forecasts via specialized cable TV weather channels is becoming increasingly commonplace.  In the case of severe weather, text is often scrolled along the bottom of TV screens during regular programming.

In the state of Alaska the National Weather Service funds the state-wide public television show "Alaska Weather", and an associated radio broadcast. Click HERE for information on the shows as well as images of weather maps produced for the TV show.
