Time Warner drops Weather Channel bid

NEW YORK (AP) -- Time Warner Inc. has dropped out of the running to buy The Weather Channel, a person familiar with the matter said Friday, leaving General Electric Co.'s NBC Universal as the main bidder.

The bidding process for The Weather Channel had drawn earlier interest from other media companies including CBS Corp., but Time Warner and NBC were the only ones that made it to the final round.
