Sam Champion, the weather anchor for ABC’s “Good Morning America,” is something of a tweeter.

His morning broadcasts often include pics followers have tweeted to him of weather shots and scenic sunrises from around the United States. Champion has even flashed a few pics viewers sent him of Alaska ... from Kodiak.

Yes, Kodiak.

Now, mind you nothing is wrong with Kodiak and we’re sure it’s a lovely place if you like rain and living on an island, but we in Fairbanks want a little Alaska cred thrown our way, too.

So here’s our challenge to you, Fairbanks: Get some scenic sunrise/sunset/weather pics tweeted to Sam at @SamChampion and let’s get Fairbanks and Interior Alaska its due on national TV. And Sam, if you get this, you can always reach me at @FDNMfeatures.

Contact Features Editor Gary Black at 459-7504, by email at or on Twitter at @FDNMfeatures.
