News for Wednesday, September 7th, 2016

  • The main broadcast channel for WPMI-TV had a promotional video for a national cable TV and satellite TV programming service owned by their holding company (or "parent company") during a break in its presentation of a local news program of theirs between 5:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. (the name of the programming service was the Tennis Channel; the name of the local news program was "Local 15 Today"; the name of the holding company was the Sinclair Broadcast Group).
  • The local news program that appeared on the main broadcast channel for WKRG-TV between the hours of 5:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. ("WKRG News 5 This Morning") had reports about traffic conditions in their local broadcast area from a person who used to provide such reports for its broadcasts on a regular basis in recent times before the one who usually did so in more recent times succeeded him (the name of the person who provided the traffic reports for the program this Wednesday was Derek Long (he referred to his self by the nickname "Kane" in the reports); the name of the person he succeeded him was Kenny Fowler).*
  • One of news presenters on the local news program mentioned in the first paragraph of this report (Darwin Singleton) said he wanted to make one of the scores of a recent football game involving the football teams for the University of South Alabama in the city of Mobile in southwest Alabama and Mississippi State University in the city of Starkville in northeast Mississippi "even bigger" after he appeared to had said a false score by mistake while presenting a report involving the actual scores for the game (this is what he said: "I wanted to make the score even bigger, but 21 to 20 is just fine"; as for when the game occurred, it occurred last Saturday on the third day of this September). 
 (*the regular news presenters for the program (Bill Riales and Jessica Taloney) and one of its graphics referred to the reporter named Derek Kane as if he were the one named Kenny Fowler (they had identified him as "Kenny") (the one named Bill Riales later referred to him as "Kane" in one of the local news segments that appeared on their main broadcast during one of the breaks in its presentation of a national network news program from their provider of network programming ("CBS This Morning" from the Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS)) this Wednesday)).
