News for Wednesday, March 9th, 2016

  • An administrator for the official Facebook page for WABF-AM recently posted a message there about a plan to transfer ownership of WABF-AM from their current owners (the Gulf Coast Broadcasting Company) to the owners of WERM-AM (the message was dated for the first day of this March; as for the name of the owners of WERM-AM, it was the Eternity Media Group).* 
  • According to a message on the official Facebook page for WKRG-TV attributed to an administrator for it, some of the text for the national news reports displayed in the ticker normally used in their local morning and midday news programming in recent times was generated by the Associated Press (the message was posted in response to a message attributed to a visitor of the page concerning an error in spelling in one of the reports for the ticker; as for when the message was dated, it was dated for this Wednesday). 
  • A video recording of a news presenter for WPMI-TV (Kelly Jones) and two guests of theirs (Matt McCoy and Greg Hill of WRGV-FM) interacting on the set of their local news programs before, during, and after their appearances in a programming segment of theirs for one of those programs ("Local 15 News at Noon") was uploaded onto their official Facebook page a few hours before the segment was broadcast as part of the program this past Monday (the seventh day of this March).**
(*news related to the plan was posted on this weblog earlier this year; back in February to be precise)

(**a video recording of the segment the way it appeared on the news program was uploaded onto the official World Wide Web site for WPMI-TV after its broadcast).
