News for Wednesday, April 6th, 2016

  • WALA-TV and WPMI-TV had special programming about a live news conference concerning the governor of Alabama (Robert Bentley) and its legislature take precedence over regular programming for their main broadcast channels this past Tuesday between 12:30 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. (the special programming for WALA-TV took precedence over a syndicated courtroom program named "Judge Mathis" whereas the special programming for WPMI-TV was part of their local midday news program). 
  • The live video stream for WALA-TV was out of sync with segments of recent editions of their local news programs and their local entertainment and lifestyle program ("Studio 10") this past Monday (the fourth day of April) and Tuesday (this explains why segments of the local news programming they had on those days were cut off from the stream a few seconds before they ended and the advertisements that preceded those segments in their programming were appearing on the stream during their last few seconds).

  1. Isn't Local 15's new graphics package just the same thing that WEAR uses? Seems like more Sinclair cost-cutting to me. I don't mind the way it looks, but I wonder if they are going for a uniform look across all their stations. I think WJLA in Washington has this package now, too.

    Also, it appears someone forgot to pay the bills and WPMI's website is no longer active. D'oh.
