News for Monday, February 2nd, 2015

  • WKRG-TV and WPMI-TV had the ceremony that took place in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania today in observance of Groundhog Day broadcast live as part of their local morning news programs ("WKRG News This Morning" and "Local 15 Today"), including its announcement about winter being expected to last six more calendar weeks. WALA-TV had the ceremony broadcast live also as part of their own local morning news program ("FOX 10 News in the Morning"), but not the announcement.
  • This past Sunday's edition of WKRG-TV's local 10:00 p.m. news program ("WKRG News 5 at 10:00") and today's edition of their local morning news program had a report about a new TV advertisement for a law firm based in Mobile (Maloney-Frost) being on WPMI-TV's main broadcast channel (radio frequency channel/virtual channel 15-1) during its break from the National Broadcasting Company's (NBC) programming about the 49th Super Bowl game between its second and third quarters (halftime). 
  • WPMI-TV's local weekly legal advice program ("Local 15 LawCall") was broadcast shortly after 12:00 a.m. today instead of during its regular time period of 10:30 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. this past Sunday, February 1st (it was not live like most of its previous editions), due to their local 10:00 p.m. news program ("Local 15 News at 10:00") and a special edition of the network variety program "Tonight" taking its place in their regular programming plan for Sunday due to their broadcast of the National Broadcast Company's programming about the 49th Super Bowl game and a dramatic network program titled "The Blacklist" before the local news program.
