News for Friday, January 13th, 2017

  • The main broadcast channel for WKRG-TV recently had a promotional video for their local news program for the second half of the hour of 4:00 a.m. and the hours of 5:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. for Monday through Friday ("WKRG News 5 This Morning") with audio of the one of the news presenters for the program (Bill Riales) talking about a person he called "Jim" having a resolution for this calendar year to "wake up early every morning to exercise" as video of the person (with what appeared to be perspiration on his face) using a treadmill appeared before saying, "Lucky for Jim, 'News 5 This Morning' comes on every morning at 4:30*' " and, "We've got you covered, Jim".  
  • The promotional video for WKRG-TV mentioned in the previous paragraph usually appeared on their main broadcast channel with another one involving a professional announcer (Jeff Davis) posing a question for members of its audience about whether they can be home to watch their local news program for the first half of the hour of 6:00 p.m. ("WKRG News 5 at 6") from Monday through Friday or not before promoting the one for other half of that hour ("WKRG News 5 at 6:30"**) with descriptions of its presenters and a slogan ("More news, more convenience. That's coverage you can count on").
(*the program was set to appear on the channel about 35 minutes earlier on a regular basis from Monday through Friday last December)
(**the program was added to their regular programming plan for Monday through Friday the same day the change to the local news program for Monday through Friday mentioned above took effect
