News for Friday, May 6th, 2016 (amended)

  • WPMI-TV had a report with a person with an identity that was usually kept out of the news programming they had concerning an incident in which he had been hit by a bullet this past April (he was said to have been an "undercover officer" for the department of police for the city of Mobile; as for whether his identity was still being protected for this report or not, it was still being protected).
  • One of the news presenters for the local news operation for WPMI-TV (Darwin Singleton) used their local news program for the hours of 5:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. ("Local 15 Today") to promote plans by a company connected to them (Ring of Honor Wrestling Entertainment)* to hold a wrestling event called "Global Wars 2016" this Sunday on the eighth day of this May (he also promoted a TV program from the company named "Ring of Honor Wrestling" and the fact it could be watched locally through the main programming feed for WJTC-TV in addition to stating a comment about the plans for the wrestling event immediately after presenting a promotional video for them ("That will keep a chiropractor busy, folks")).  
(*both WPMI-TV, WJTC-TV, Ring of Honor Wrestling Entertainment were members of the same holding (or "parent") company: the Sinclair Broadcast Group)

(amendment note: the second paragraph of this report was amended with additional details)
