2016 Gatlinburg & Vicinity Wildfires

Local News Media Information

Update:  December 2, 2016 - Friday

Due to the lack of national news coverage of the recent wildfires that struck the Gatlinburg area November of 2016, I received numerous requests via e-mail to include links to the local news media covering Sevier County. Sevier County is part of the Knoxville, TN DMA market. There are also some areas of Sevier County that can receive TV stations from the Tri-Cities, TN/VA DMA market as well as WLOS Channel 13 from the Greenville-Spartanburg, SC, Asheville, NC DMA market, so I'm including these also. The links that I've listed here are only for TV stations that maintain news departments. There are some stations in both DMA markets that do not maintain news departments. You can find the full list of Knoxville, TV stations here.

Area Weather

Note: Due to there being so many different weather providers out there, I chose to list these by each city with the provider links separate and also due to each city's changing climate being in the Smokies. Also, Charter Spectrum, which is the cable TV provider inside the three cities has recently redesigned their portal page and no longer offers weather information via their portal page, which is why those links have been removed from this page. If you happen to take advantage of your motel or resort's wi-fi connection during your stay in either of these cities, you will find that many of them also use Charter Spectrum as their broadband Internet Service Provider formerly part of UltraComm Cable Co. Xfinity does serve some outlying rural areas of Sevier County outside of these cities including some areas Kodak, Wears Valley, Upper Middle Creek, Caton's Chapel, and the outer East Parkway area of Gatlinburg near Glades Road formerly part of Greenbrier Cable Co, but not all rural areas and neither does AT&T. People who live in these under served rural areas are forced to rely on slow dial up access since many can't afford Satellite Internet.
