ATLANTA, Nov. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, The Weather Channel television network, the #1 source for weather news and information on TV for nearly 40 years, and Pattrn, The Weather Channel's climate centric and sustainability platform, announce a new multi-year, exclusive sponsorship with BlueTriton Brands, known for its extensive portfolio of regional spring water and national purified water brands. This sponsorship helps viewers understand the importance of prepping for challenging weather conditions, as well as how much water they should have on hand for impending storms or hot temperatures. The BlueTriton Brands sponsorship will also extend to Pattrn, bringing new sustainability and water conservation focused content to the platform.
As part of the exclusive sponsorship, The Weather Channel will integrate BlueTriton Brands' regional spring water brands both in studio sets and in-field during storm coverage. Featuring the spring water brands Poland Spring®, Arrowhead®, Deer Park®, Ice Mountain®, Zephyrhills® and Ozarka®, The Weather Channel will produce custom content distributed on its network through regional targeting, with messaging for both Hurricane Season and Summer High Temperatures preparedness. The Weather Channel will also deploy Meteorologists to some BlueTriton Brands' water springs to discuss the history of the particular spring water and the company's current conservation and sustainability efforts.
"In a year of record highs and storms, making sure you have enough water on hand, in the house, or on your store shelves has never been so crucial," said Barbara Bekkedahl, President of Weather Group, Ad Sales and Client Partnerships. "This is one of the many reasons why we're so excited to announce this sponsorship with BlueTriton Brands, to make sure that not only is our Weather Channel family of viewers and staff staying hydrated and healthy, but we're also showing easy, concrete steps each person can take to help be prepared for inclement weather."
"We're honored to be working with The Weather Channel to educate consumers on the importance of being properly hydrated and prepared, especially in times of extreme weather conditions," said Laetitia Allexant, VP of Marketing at BlueTriton Brands. "Providing healthy hydration solutions in sustainable ways has always been at the core of what we do, that's why we're also excited to bring new sustainability and water conservation content to the TWC platform. This content will help consumers learn more about where their spring water is sourced from and how we can all partner together to help conserve our planet's most precious resources."
