News for Friday, January 6th, 2017 (amended)

 (amendment note: more information was added to the first paragraph in parentheses below this message and the words "this calendar week" in the paragraph directly below this message were hyperlinked to information relevant to some of its subjects)
  • The guides to the cable TV channel for the programming feed of the Alabama Public Television station licensed to the city of Mobile in southwest Alabama that used to have the live programming feed of a national TV programming service named WORLD on a regular basis prior to this calendar week in the cable TV system operated by Comcast Cablevision of Mobile still had listings for its programs (the name of the station was WEIQ-TV).
  • Some of the news presenters for the local news operation at WPMI-TV had used some of their local news programming for this Friday to promote a new dramatic TV program from their main provider of network programming that was expected to appear on their main broadcast channel on this Friday after their promotions for it (the name of the program was "Emerald City"; it for the name of its provider, it was the National Broadcasting Company (NBC)).*
  • Some of the local news programs that appeared on the main broadcast channels for WALA-TV and WKRG-TV since this past Thursday on the fifth day of this January had what appeared to had been live news reports** from the city of Tampa in the state of Florida involving members of their respective local news operations (one of the reports for the one at WKRG-TV even involved a former news reporter and news presenter for theirs (Avery Cotton of WFLA-TV in Tampa***)).
(*at least one of the news presenters (Kelly Foster) said what may or may not had been her own personal comments about the program, such as the idea that it was "not for kids" and the idea that it was tampering upon a theatrical movie she was said was a "classic" (the theatrical movie originally released in the year 1939 named "The Wizard of Oz") as if it were based solely on the movie (both of them were based elements of a stories of stories written by a person named Lyman Frank (L. Frank) Baum (she did not mention those stories or explain what she meant by the idea the new TV program was "not for kids"))
 (**the reports were mainly about a plan to hold a football game involving the football teams for the University of Alabama and Clemson University in Tampa next Monday on the ninth day of this January) 

(***both WKRG-TV and WFLA-TV were members of the same holding (or "parent") company (Media General))
