News for Thursday, May 25th, 2017 (corrected)

(note: the title of the news program mentioned in the third paragraph below was corrected) 
  • Earlier this Thursday, the main broadcast channel for WPMI-TV had an advertisement about a radio station in their local broadcast area (WKSJ-FM) having a syndicated radio program named "The Bobby Bones Show" in their programming plans (the station was mentioned by their brand name: "95KSJ"). 
  • The local news program that appeared on the main broadcast channel for WKRG-TV during the first half of the hour of 10:00 p.m. this past Wednesday on the twenty-fourth day of this May ("WKRG News 5 at 10") had a report about an episode of a national TV program named "The Great Food Truck Race" being produced in their local broadcast area (the city of Pensacola in the state of Florida, specifically the northwestern part of Florida). 
  • Some of the weather reporters for the local news operation at WKRG-TV had used some of the weather segments of some of the local news programs that had appeared on their main broadcast channel between this Thursday and this past Wednesday to promote a special program for the channel named "HURRICANE: Simply Safety" (it was said to appear on the channel during a time period when it was usually set to have a local news program of theirs from Monday through Friday in recent times ("WKRG News 5 at 6:30" during the second half of the hour of 6:00 p.m.).*
(*the program appeared to be available on a World Wide Web site specialized in audio and video recordings named YouTube)

News for Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

  • A Facebook page attributed to WABF-AM had a message dated for the Monday of the twenty-second day of this May about a plan to have recordings of some of their radio programs uploaded onto a World Wide Web site attributed to them from that day forward. 
  • Some of the news presenters for the local news operation at WKRG-TV had used the words "terror alert" to describe reports about an explosion in the United Kingdom on some of the local news programs that had appeared on their main broadcast channel since the Tuesday of the twenty-third day of this May (the reports usually proceeded animated sequences involving those words). 
  • The beginning of the local news program that appeared on the main broadcast channel for WKRG-TV during the first half of the hour of 10:00 p.m. this past Tuesday ("WKRG News 5 at 10") had one of its news presenters state a claim about their selves based on presumption about some video of an arrest uploaded onto a Facebook page attributed to them earlier that day (you may access video of her presenting the claim through this hyperlink). 

Commentary on what was usually a program dedicated to entertainment and lifestyles ("Studio 10")

(note: this commentary was written on the Tuesday of the twenty-third day of this May)

I did not like hearing the hosts for the edition of the program ("Studio 10") broadcast this Tuesday (Joe Emer and Chasity Byrd) comment about reports of a bomb exploding near the location of a concert in the United Kingdom about to end on the Monday on the twenty-second day of this May or the fact it had video of a (very corrupt) politician commenting on the explosion (in a very rude way) as if this were a program dedicated to discussing news in general. I also did not like hearing one of the hosts (Joe Emer) talk about the explosion as if he sure they were caused by a group of killers as if there were reports confirming the idea that was caused by such a group ("Just unbelievable. What a bunch of cowards who perpetrated this act.")*. They should had kept what may or may had not been their personal opinions about certain subjects like the explosion to their selves and should had not allowed for the video of the aforementioned politician commenting about it. They probably should had not talked about it at all since their station (WALA-TV) all ready had reports about it in some of its programs about news in general since this past Monday.

(*here are some of his other comments about the explosion: "Every media outlet in the world has their focus on what's going on right there (in the United Kingdom) as they should"; "Just unbelievably sad and tragic news"; "I will never understand for as long as I live why someone thinks attacking innocent children is going to accomplish something").

  • The main broadcast channel for WALA-TV had a promotional video about two programs that were usually part of its regular programming plan for Monday through Friday in recent times with an announcer not normally used in other promotional videos about its programming in recent times (the programs promoted in this video were named "How I Met Your Mother" and "Hot in Cleveland").* 
(*the announcer in the video referred to the programming feed for the channel by the name normally used to promote it in recent times ("FOX 10"))

News for Sunday, May 21st, 2017

  • The local news programs that appeared on the main broadcast channels for WALA-TV, WPMI-TV, and WKRG-TV during the evening hours of this Sunday ("FOX 10 News at 9:00 p.m." during the hour of 9:00 p.m and "Local 15 News at 10 p.m." and "WKRG News 5 at 10" during the first half of the hour of 10:00 p.m.) were not in agreement in their identifications and depictions of a certain person involved in a certain incident in the city of Saraland in southwest Alabama (the one on the channel for WALA-TV had her identified by a name not used to identify her on the ones on the channels for WKRG-TV and WPMI-TV ("Summer" rather than "Crystal") whereas the one on the channel for WPMI-TV was the only one to only have audio of her speaking (one of its reporters had said she did not want to appear on camera).

News for Saturday, May 20th, 2017

  • The news presenters for the local news program that appeared on the main broadcast channel for WALA-TV during the first half of the hour of 10:00 p.m. this past Friday on the nineteenth day of this May (Bob Grip and Lenise Ligon of  "FOX 10 News at 10:00 p.m.") had used the last few seconds of the program to present what sounded like tributes to a member of its staff beyond its cameras (the one named Lenise Ligon said she was one of the people who had worked "behind the scenes" of the program in recent times whereas the one named Bob Grip said she leaving them for "bigger and better things" and "dreams" (as for her name, the one named Bob Grip said it was "Xaviar Wallace").

Commentary on a silly question for an interview, an advertisement that sounded very deceptive, and a national TV programming service

  • I thought one of the questions for one of the interviews for the local news program that appeared on the main broadcast channel for WKRG-TV during the first half of the hour of 10:00 p.m. on the Wednesday of the tenth day of this May ("WKRG News 5 at 10") was very silly and unnecessary, specifically the one it had for a report about a person being chased by something that its conductor (Debbie Williams) said was an "alligator" (this is what she said that I thought was very silly and unnecessary: "Did you hear the music in the back of your head--the ba-dum...ba-dum?" (I had presumed she was recalling a certain tune used in a movie named "Jaws" )).
  • Some of the local news programs for the local news operation at WKRG-TV that appeared on their main broadcast channel on the Friday of the nineteenth day of this May had an advertisement that sounded very deceptive about a report set to appear on one of those programs ("WKRG News 5 at 5 [p.m.]") on the Monday of the twenty-second day of this May (its presenter (a news reporter named Joseph Blake (J. B.) Biunno) had paused between some of the words he had used to promote this report ("For the first time at WKRG: A three hundred and sixty degree report on television...from the motorcycle of a daredevil" (the pause was between the words "television" and "from"))). 
  • I had noticed several reports on the World Wide Web site Twitter about a satellite TV company named Dish Network having programming for a national TV programming service named BUZZR added to their satellite TV system earlier this calendar week before checking with their official World Wide Web site to confirm whether these reports was true or not since I was not one of their customers or anywhere near a TV set connected to the system. I was able to do so upon visiting their site and seeing the name for the service listed among the programming services for which they were an affiliate (I still hope someone local starts broadcasting programming from BUZZR on a regular basis soon; it would be something I would want to watch on a frequent basis if I were able to do so, whether it be through a local TV station or through a satellite TV system like the one for Dish Network).
