GRACIE K., LA
I am an adult (66) with late onset asthma, and it is not being controlled very well. I need clean air to breathe better.
Lately, I have been having an exceptionally difficult time breathing. I would like to be able to know the state of our air quality before I venture out to start my day. I used to get that information from WAFB-TV, Channel 9 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, but they no longer give us that information.
If it were possible for more television stations to broadcast that information on their weather forecast, more people would benefit from that information before going outside to prevent running into the kinds of breathing troubles that has been happening to me lately.
