No Traffic Cams on FOX-29

Has anyone else noticed that you haven't seen any traffic cam shots during any of the traffic segments on FOX-29 in weeks? It's not your imagination. Several weeks ago the station ended its relationship with Metro Networks, the traffic service who provided them with their traffic data and access to the "metro cams" and penndot cameras. FOX used Metro Networks for the last nine years or so. FOX-29's traffic information now comes from the folks at Traffic Pulse, also known as "Traffic dot com". However, since the camera feed was cut by Metro Networks several weeks back, engineers have been unsuccessful in bringing in the new traffic camera feed out of Traffic Pulse's headquarters. Poor Dorothy only has her fancy graphics and smiley face to rely on for now.
