News for Sunday, May 22nd, 2016

  • One of the weather reporters for the local news operation at WKRG-TV (Melissa Constanzer) said she was "happy to be a woman in America" in response to a news report about female persons who were pilots in the Second World War being eligible to their bodies buried at Arlington National Cemetery in the city of Arlington in the state of Virginia upon their deaths that one of their news presenters for the operation (Chad Petri) had presented on their local news program for Sunday mornings ("WKRG News 5 This Morning: Sunday") this Sunday.  
  • WKRG-TV had a dramatic narrative in an advertisement for a new series of reports planned for some of their local news programs for the next calendar week in their local news programming this Sunday (its narrator (Emily DeVoe) had described the subject of the reports ("the Zika virus") this way: "It's a story so important, we have Peter Albrecht, Bill Riales, Jacqueline Quynh, and myself working to answer your questions like who's at risk, what's being done locally to prepare, and why do conditions along the coast make for the perfect storm if there's ever an outbreak"). 
  • One of the news presenters and news reporters for the local news operation at WPMI-TV (Andrea Ramey) had used the word "destroy" to describe how a group of softball players from Auburn University defeated a group of softball players from Jacksonville State University in a game of softball this Sunday before referring to a professional tennis player (named Roger Federer) as "the greatest player of all time" and another (named Serena Williams) as "the world's number one" while introducing a report about them from a national cable TV and satellite TV programming service owned by their holding (or parent) company (the Tennis Channel) on their local 5:00 p.m. news program ("Local 15 News at 5 p.m."). 
(*WPMI-TV and the Tennis Channel share the same owners within the same company: the Sinclair Broadcast Group)
