News for Monday, March 13th, 2017 (updated)

  • One of the cable TV channels in the cable TV system operated by Comcast Cablevision of Mobile had a magnified (or "cropped") version of the programming feed for the main broadcast channel for WALA-TV this morning (it usually had a matted version of it since the year 2012*) (update: a more narrow version of the programming feed began appearing on the channel by the midday hours of this Monday (everything appeared thinner as a result)). 
  • A World Wide Web site specialized in obituaries named Legacy.com had a notice about a former TV announcer for WALA-TV named G. Douglas (Doug) Paul dying last Tuesday on the seventh day of this March (you may listen to some recordings of some of the announcements he did for some of the local news programming they had between the calendar years 1985 and 1995 through this hyperlink). 
(*it had a magnified version of it earlier this March)
(**an amended version of the report for WPMI-TV was posted in place of it afterwards (the previous version was still available in its entirety through a World Wide Web site named the Internet Archive))
