  • WALA-TV had some announcements in their local news programming about two syndicated TV programs of theirs ("Jeopardy!" and "Wheel of Fortune") being set to be part of their main programming feed during time periods in which they were usually not part of its programming (2:00 a.m to 3:00 a.m.* this Saturday) due to their plan to have soccer programming from their main provider of network programming (the FOX Broadcasting Company) on the feed during the time period in which those programs were usually not part of its programming from Monday through Friday (6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.) this past Friday.
