  • The local news program that appeared on the main broadcast channel for WPMI-TV this past Thursday on the night of the fifteenth day of this September ("Local 15 News at 10 p.m.") had a report about a plan to have radio programming for an Internet radio station at the University of South Alabama in the city of Mobile in southwest Alabama named "The Prowl" (their legal name was WJGR-LP) broadcast from a terrestrial transmitter for the first time this Friday.**
  • The former broadcast facility for WALA-TV and a former radio station named WALA-AM located in the "down-town" area of the city of Mobile was part of a special segment of a local TV program dedicated to entertainment and lifestyles that appeared on the main broadcast channels for WPMI-TV and WJTC-TV ("Gulf Coast Today") this past Thursday (neither WALA-TV nor WALA-AM was mentioned by name in the segment; as for what the segment was mainly about, it was about a house that used to be located where their broadcast facility was located (it was called "the Bestor House")).* 
(*WPMI-TV, WJTC-TV, and WPEC-TV were members of the same holding (or "parent") company: the Sinclair Broadcast Group)

(**the presenter of the report (Kym Thurman) said the terrestrial broadcasts would start at "ten [o'clock]" without any reference to the time of day for when they were expected such as a.m. (for this morning) or p.m. (for this evening) (according to the official World Wide Web site for the university and their official Facebook page, the transmitter had started broadcasting their programming sometime between 10:00 a.m. and 1:45 p.m. today)
