News for Friday, June 3rd, 2016

  • A video file of a special TV program for about tropical cyclones that was set to appear on the main broadcast channels for WPMI-TV and WJTC-TV this past Wednesday on the first day of this June was uploaded onto the official World Wide Web site for WPMI-TV (the name of the program was "Surviving the Storm").
  • Some of the weather reporters for WKRG-TV had used some of their local news programming for this calendar week to promote a new special TV program about tropical cyclones ("Hurricane Hazard: Get Ready") set to appear on their main broadcast channel next Monday on the sixth day of this June between 7:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. (it was usually set to have network programming from the Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) during that time period on a daily basis in recent times). 
  • One of the presenters on the local news program WKRG-TV had on their main broadcast channel between 6:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. this Friday (Randy Patrick Setterstrom on "WKRG News 5 at 6") used part of its broadcast to say that a former radio announcer from Mobile named Dick Hilton had died this Friday (he also said the announcer had worked for two radio stations in Mobile formerly known as WKRG-FM and WKRG-AM and one that no longer exists named WABB-AM as part of the announcement).* 
(*as of this writing, the radio station formerly known as WKRG-FM is now known as WMXC-FM whereas the one formerly known as WKRG-AM is now known as WNTM-AM).
