DirecTV bumps Weather Channel's Jim Cantore from Dan Patrick Show

DirecTV bumps Weather Channel's Jim Cantore from Dan Patrick Show

Sportscaster Dan Patrick found his popular morning radio and television show caught in the middle of a feud between DirecTV and the Weather Channel.

Patrick's show had booked Weather Channel star Jim Cantore to appear on the show this week to talk about the forecast for Sunday's Super Bowl, which is being played in northern New Jersey.

But that apparently didn't sit too well with DirecTV, which owns Patrick's show and carries it on its own Audience Network Channel. DirecTV stopped carrying the Weather Channel earlier this month because of a contract dispute and the two have been trading blows in the press.
