News for Monday, October 12th, 2015

  • WALA-TV had a report from a TV station in Phoenix, Arizona with the same brand name as their local news operation ("FOX 10 News") in a segment of their local entertainment and lifestyle program ("Studio 10") today (the name of the station was KSAZ-TV)*.
  • WPMI-TV had a report about a resident of their local broadcast area appearing on a national network TV program ("America's Funniest Home Videos") on their local 5:00 p.m. news program ("Local 15 News at 5:00 p.m.") this past Sunday, October 11th (the presenter of the report referred to the station set to have the edition of the program with the resident broadcast in southwest Alabama that day as their "sister station" since they were members of the same company: the Sinclair Broadcast Group).
  • One of the news presenters for WKRG-TV (Ashley Knight) made an optimistic statement about a professional football team from New Orleans, Louisiana (the Saints of New Orleans) in a report about the team for their local 10:00 p.m. news program ("WKRG News 5 at 10") this past Sunday, October 10th ("The Saints turned the ball over four times in the 39-to-17 loss and will have a quick turn-a-round with a Thursday night game against the Atlanta Falcons in the Superdome right here on WKRG**").
(*the host for the program who introduced the report had erroneously referred to the person who narrated the report in a way members of the FOX News Channel were usually referenced in their local news programming (this is how he referred to the narrator: "FOX's Anita Roman")

(**WKRG-TV was set to have network programming about a football game those teams were expected to have this Thursday, October 15th
