News for Friday, July 8th, 2016

  • WALA-TV had special news programming (with a news reporter of theirs named Lee Peck in the role of news presenter) take precedence over regular programming (unrelated to news) on their main broadcast channel between 12:00 a.m. and 12:05 a.m. (it was about a series of shootings in the city of Dallas in the state of Texas).    
  • WPMI-TV had one of their local news programs ("Local 15 News at 10 p.m.) begin and end a few minutes later than usual due to some special network programming from their main provider of network programming (the National Broadcasting Company (NBC)) ending after its regular start time (10:00 p.m. was the regular start time for the news program).  
  • One of the local radio announcers for WAVH-FM (Sean Sullivan) talked about what some listeners of some of their local radio programs were discussing on those programs this past Thursday on the seventh day of this July (he was asked specifically about what they were saying about recent shootings involving police officers in the city of Baton Rouge in the state of Louisiana and the city of Falcon Heights in the state of Minnesota).
  • WALA-TV had video of a live news conference with the mayor of Mobile (William Sandys (Sandy) Stimpson) in the last segment of the most recent edition of a local TV program of theirs dedicated to entertainment and lifestyles ("Studio 10") (even though some microphones for WKRG-TV and WPMI-TV were visible at the news conference, they did not have video of the news conference in their programming feeds as it was happening).*
