News for Sunday, August 30th, 2015

  • Both WZEW-FM and WNSP-FM had a programming segment about plans for a "blood drive" that occurred in Mobile last July on the broadcast frequencies this morning (the segment was part of a local public affairs program normally broadcast by them on a weekly basis titled "Community Roundtable"). 
  • This past Friday's edition of WKRG-TV's local midday news program ("WKRG News 5 at Noon") had video of a reporter for WKRG-TV (Avery Cotton) providing a live report from Gulfport, Mississippi about the previous president of the United States (George Walker Bush) attending a ceremony there to commemorate to tenth anniversary of the day that a tropical cyclone named "Katrina" affected it and other cities around it (the anniversary was this past Saturday, August 29th) whereas WPMI-TV's local midday news program  ("Local 15 News at Noon") had only had video of the ceremony itself along descriptions of it from a news presenter in their broadcast facility in Mobile (the name of the news presenter was Kelly Jones).
  • Even though the local midday news program for WKRG-TV was the only TV news program of its kind in southwest Alabama to have had a live report about the ceremony mentioned in the previous paragraph, the one for WPMI-TV was the only one of that kind to have had video of the former president of the United States mentioned in that paragraph speaking live at the ceremony.
