News for Friday, July 29th, 2016

  • Earlier this July, a promotional video for a news service owned by the holding (or "parent") company of WPMI-TV and WJTC-TV (the Sinclair Broadcast Group) began appearing on their main broadcast channels on a regular basis (the name of the news service was Circa).
  • Some of the presenters for the local news operation at WPMI-TV were using some of their local news programming for this calendar week to gossip about a former resident of Mobile (Jimmy Buffett) being set to perform songs on a national TV program set to be part of their programming this Friday (the name of the program was "Today").
  • This past Tuesday on the twenty-sixth day of this July, the main broadcast channel for WJTC-TV had a promotional video for WPMI-TV with their main weather reporter for their local news operation (Chris Dunn) saying they had partnerships with radio stations owned by Cumulus Media located in Mobile (including WBLX-FM, WDLT-FM, WGOK-AM, WXQW-AM, and WABD-FM) in preparation of the possibility of a tropical cyclone (or hurricane) affecting Mobile and other parts of their local broadcast areas.
