News for Tuesday, September 20th, 2016

  • According to some past TV programming guides published by the Mobile Press-Register between the years 1982 and 1988, the earliest editions of a national TV game program that usually appeared on the programming feeds for a national cable TV and satellite TV programming service named the Game Show Network (GSN) under the name "The $25,000 Pyramid" on a daily basis since the Monday of the twentieth day of this past June were not part of the programming plans for the TV station in southwest Alabama affiliated with their original distributor (WKRG-TV was the name of the station; the Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) was the name of the distributor).*
  • A local TV program for WALA-TV dedicated to entertainment and lifestyles ("Studio 10") had one of its hosts (Michael White) tell its other host (Chasity Byrd) that her nephew (she called him "Swayden" on the program) was on their local news program for Monday through Friday mornings ("FOX 10 News in the Morning") this Tuesday and that her niece was going to be on the program in a way similar to the way the nephew appeared on the program (both of them were in weather segments named "Bus Stop Forecasts") "until something happened in the video" with the niece that prevented her from appearing on the program (the host named Michael White also commented about the segment with the nephew being "butchered" by a graphic with incorrect weather information that was gradually removed during its broadcast (video of the nephew on the news program was shown on the entertainment and lifestyle program)).
(*according to the same programming guides, WJTC-TV had later editions of the program in their programming plans by the year 1986 (they were not affiliated with a national TV network like the one for CBS by then), along with editions of other network game programs from CBS that were not set to appear on the broadcast channel for WKRG-TV such as their versions of "Family Feud" and "Card Sharks")
