News for Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

  • None of the local TV stations with local news operations (WKRG-TV, WALA-TV, WPMI-TV, and WEAR-TV) had video of the president of the United States' (Barack Obama) announcing executive orders concerning certain immigrants in the United States live in their programming this past Thursday, November 20th (between 7:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.), since their respective primary providers of network programming had no plans to provide the speech live to all of their network stations.
  • Some of the news presenters in WKRG-TV's local news programming this past Wednesday (November 19th) and Thursday had said they would have the aforementioned speech broadcast live as part of their programming in spite of their primary provider of network programming having no plan to provide the speech to them live before one of them had suggested that viewers and/or listeners of their programming watch and/or hear the speech live through other broadcasters without saying whether WKRG-TV would still have the speech broadcast live or not.
  • Erin McPike of the Cable News Network (CNN) provided a live report for WALA-TV's local 4:00 p.m. news program ("FOX 10 News at 4:00 p.m.") this past Thursday while in a remote location outside of the local broadcast area of WALA-TV (the report was about the president of the United States' plan to announce executive orders concerning certain immigrants that day). She also interacted with one of the news presenters for the news program (Lenise Ligon) at WALA-TV's broadcast facility in Mobile afterwards (they were having a conversation about the report).
