News for Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

  • One of the news presenters on 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. (Bill Riales on "WKRG News 5 This Morning") called the camera used for one of the traffic reports on the program (a "Bayway Report") "a vintage 1930s ('nineteen thirties') ALDOT (an acronym for the Alabama Department of Transportation) camera" since the video from the camera appeared in shades of black and white during the report like most movies made during the decade he had referenced (they usually had video from the camera appear with a wider range of colors for reports such as this one before then).
  • According to a message on the official Facebook page for WALA-TV dated for this Wednesday and attributed to a member of their local news operation who usually did reports about traffic conditions in their local broadcast area on their local news program for Monday though Friday mornings (the name of the member was Asha Staples; the name of the program was "FOX 10 News in the Morning"), the member had "switched" from the position of doing such reports on a regular basis to a position of doing news reports from the county of Baldwin in southwest Alabama (east of the city of Mobile in the county of Mobile) on a regular basis (the message was posted in response to a message attributed to a visitor of the page concerning her ("Where is Asha with traffic?")).
