Commentary on a silly question for an interview, an advertisement that sounded very deceptive, and a national TV programming service

  • I thought one of the questions for one of the interviews for the local news program that appeared on the main broadcast channel for WKRG-TV during the first half of the hour of 10:00 p.m. on the Wednesday of the tenth day of this May ("WKRG News 5 at 10") was very silly and unnecessary, specifically the one it had for a report about a person being chased by something that its conductor (Debbie Williams) said was an "alligator" (this is what she said that I thought was very silly and unnecessary: "Did you hear the music in the back of your head--the ba-dum...ba-dum?" (I had presumed she was recalling a certain tune used in a movie named "Jaws" )).
  • Some of the local news programs for the local news operation at WKRG-TV that appeared on their main broadcast channel on the Friday of the nineteenth day of this May had an advertisement that sounded very deceptive about a report set to appear on one of those programs ("WKRG News 5 at 5 [p.m.]") on the Monday of the twenty-second day of this May (its presenter (a news reporter named Joseph Blake (J. B.) Biunno) had paused between some of the words he had used to promote this report ("For the first time at WKRG: A three hundred and sixty degree report on television...from the motorcycle of a daredevil" (the pause was between the words "television" and "from"))). 
  • I had noticed several reports on the World Wide Web site Twitter about a satellite TV company named Dish Network having programming for a national TV programming service named BUZZR added to their satellite TV system earlier this calendar week before checking with their official World Wide Web site to confirm whether these reports was true or not since I was not one of their customers or anywhere near a TV set connected to the system. I was able to do so upon visiting their site and seeing the name for the service listed among the programming services for which they were an affiliate (I still hope someone local starts broadcasting programming from BUZZR on a regular basis soon; it would be something I would want to watch on a frequent basis if I were able to do so, whether it be through a local TV station or through a satellite TV system like the one for Dish Network).

  • The main broadcast channels for WALA-TV and WKRG-TV had this advertisement about a member of the Senate of the United States from Alabama named Luther Strange during breaks from local news programming this past Wednesday on the seventeenth day of this May.  
  • The local news program that appeared on the main broadcast channel for WKRG-TV during the first half of the hour of 10:00 p.m. this Thursday ("WKRG News 5 at 10") had what appeared to be an update to a special report they had in their programming earlier this calendar year (it was about two members of the broadcast operation comparing two cities in their local broadcast area (the city of Mobile in southwest Alabama and the city of Pensacola in northwest Florida (their designated market area was also named after them, along with another city in their local broadcast area (the city of Fort Walton Beach in northwest Florida)). 
  • The local news program that appeared on the main broadcast channel for WKRG-TV during the first half of the hour of 5:00 p.m. this past Wednesday ("WKRG News 5 at 5") had a report about a member of their local news operation (Melissa Constanzer) and other folks claiming to had seen a person with a knife at a park last Sunday on the fourteenth day of this May (the member was not referenced the way most persons over the age of 18* were usually referenced in their local news programming in recent times (she was called by only her first name (or forename) after the first reference to her rather than by only last name (or surname)).   
(*they had reports in which certain persons stated as being over the age of 60 were referenced by the words "mister" and "miss" along with their last names after the first references to them)

    Commentary on dramatic language in news reporting, an addiction to "breaking news", and an old brand name

    • I would had not used words like "big", "bad", "gigantic", and "wow" to describe a series of automobile accidents on the local news program that appeared on the main broadcast channel for WKRG-TV during the first half of the hour of 10:00 p.m. on the Wednesday of the third day of this May ("WKRG News 5 at 10"). 
    • I had noticed more proclamations of "breaking news" in the first segments of recent editions of local news programs for WALA-TV and WKRG-TV in recent times (especially on Monday through Friday editions of the one that usually appeared on the main broadcast channel for WKRG-TV during the first half of the hour of 10:00 p.m in recent times.). For example, the first segment of the one that appeared on the main broadcast channel for WALA-TV on the Wednesday of the third day of this May ("FOX 10 News at 10:00 p.m.") began with an animated sequence involving the words "breaking news" and audio of one of its news presenters (Bob Grip) saying they were following "three breaking news stories" while videos related to those "stories" appeared.   
    • I had noticed the name "TV5" was used in reference to a TV station in the city of Saginaw in the state of Michigan in a news report attributed to them during a visit to the official World Wide Web site WALA-TV earlier this May, since it was a brand name for WKRG-TV for many years between the calendar years 1974 and 1998. Personally I hope someone in charge of WKRG-TV decides to utilize it in their programming again (he or she could even make the name "NewsCenter 5" be the brand name for their local news operation again (coincidentally, the station in this city of Saginaw appeared to be affiliated with the Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) with programming on a virtual channel 5 just like WKRG-TV. Both of them also appeared to have had the same slogan for their local news operations in recent times: "coverage you can count on".))

    • The local news programs that appeared on the main broadcast channels for WALA-TV and WPMI-TV this past Monday ("FOX 10 News at 10:00 p.m." and "Local 15 News at 10 p.m.") each had video of what appeared to be a live news conference about a member of the House of Representatives of the United States from Alabama (named Mo Brooks) campaigning for a position in the Senate of the United States (the one on the channel for WALA-TV was the only one to have audio of (some of) it whereas the one for WPMI-TV only had audio of one of its news presenters talking about it over some of its video of it)
    (*the news presenter for the local news program that appeared on the channel during the first half of the hour of 12:00 p.m. this Tuesday (Bill Riales on "WKRG News 5 at Noon") presented a "preview" of the report narrated by this member of their news operation (he said it was a "story" she was "working on").

      • Some parts of the set normally used for the local news programs at WALA-TV in recent times were used for an installment of a program dedicated to entertainment and lifestyles ("Studio 10") that appeared on their main broadcast channel this Monday (the parts included a group of monitors displaying single images and a separate monitor on a part of the set normally used for presenting weather reports for the news programs).

      • The news presenter for the local news program that appeared on the main broadcast channel for WALA-TV during the hours of 7:00 a.m. this Sunday (Candace Murphy of "FOX 10 News at 7:00 a.m.") used the last part of the program to present images of persons she said were the ones making it happen "behind the scenes" with their mothers along with the ones she said were of her self and her own mother and its weather reporter (Matt Barrentine) with his mother (video of her doing so was uploaded onto a Facebook page attributed to her).

          • The news presenter for the local news program that appeared on the main broadcast channel for WALA-TV during the hour of 7:00 a.m. this Saturday (Candace Murphy on "FOX 10 News at 7:00 a.m.") said they "wanted" to show the mothers of members of their audience in their programming this Sunday on the fourteenth day of this May (it was considered a day to celebrate mothers in the United States this calendar year) while talking about how those members could it possible for them to do so (she was encouraging them to do it).

          (note: the third paragraph below was amended for additional information and clarity)
          • The main broadcast channel for WALA-TV had two syndicated programs ("Wild About Animals" and "On the Spot") that were not usually part of its regular programming plan for the hour of 10:00 a.m. for Monday through Friday in recent times in place of the one that was usually part of that plan ("The Real") this Friday.*
          • Folks who may had visited Facebook pages such as those attributed to local TV and radio stations in southwest Alabama on a daily basis prior to the Wednesday of the tenth day of this May may had noticed the pages usually had messages attributed to visitors like them in sections separate from their main (or "home") sections on a daily basis since then.**
          • The local news programs that appeared on the main broadcast channel for WKRG-TV during the first half of the hour of 5:00 p.m. ("WKRG News 5 at 5"), the first and second halves of the hour of 6:00 p.m. ("WKRG News 5 at 6" and "WKRG News 5 at 6:30"), and the first half of the hour of 10:00 p.m. ("WKRG News 5 at 10") this past Thursday on the eleventh day of this May usually did not have monitors with live videos displaying different structures located in the down-town area of the city of Mobile in southwest Alabama (such as the ones named the RSA-Trustmark Bank Building, the Renaissance Mobile Riverview Plaza Hotel, and the RSA Battle House Tower) behind their news presenters by then (they usually had a still image of the same structures from a different perspective while a slogan and a World Wide Web address for the local news operation at WKRG-TV ("COVERAGE YOU CAN COUNT ON" and "WKRG.COM" respectively) moved above some of the structures in a vertical fashion).***
          (*the guides to the main broadcast channel for WALA-TV from Zap2it, TitanTV, and TV Guide had the edition of "The Real" the channel could have had instead of those other programs this Friday listed as being part of its programming plan for the hour of 2:00 a.m. for the Sunday of the fourteenth day of this May)

          Commentary: Unprofessional descriptions

          (note: this article was originally made this past Thursday on the eleventh day of this May)

          I thought the ways in which the news presenters on the edition of the local news program that appeared on the main broadcast channel for WKRG-TV during the first half of the hour of 5:00 p.m. this Thursday (Peter Albrecht and Devon Walsh on "WKRG News 5 at 5") talked about the host of a series of games for a syndicated program usually set to appear on the channel before the news program during the first and second halves of the hour of 4:00 p.m. from Monday through Friday in recent times (Steve Harvey of "Family Feud") was very unprofessional (the one named Peter Albrecht said this during the opening of this edition of the news program: "And who's acting like a prima donna? Survey says...Steve Harvey" (a sound effect normally used for showing responses to questions in a part of the program named "Fast Money" was used between his sayings of the words "says" and "Steve"); he later said this while presenting news about the host (concerning a memo attributed to him) with the one named Devon Walsh: "But the memo is not great for Harvey's nice-guy personality". As for what the one named Devon Walsh said about the host, she said this about him before presenting the aforementioned news about him with the one named Peter Albrecht after one of its breaks: "Coming up after the break: Lovable Steve Harvey under fire for a memo he sent to his staff".

            Commentary on an interesting microphone, an extravagant description and some presumptuous phrases

            • The microphone or microphones with a past logo for WKRG-TV in some videos dated for the calendar year 1995 on a YouTube channel attributed to them appeared to be larger than the ones I usually saw on the local news programs that were part of their programming after the calendar year 1997 (I did not see the local news programming they had prior to the calendar year 1998 very often due to my watching local news programs for WALA-TV more often by then (WALA-TV was my favorite local station for local news by then)). 
            • I wish the news presenters for the local news operation at WALA-TV would not use any of their news programs to say phrases like, "We first told you about it last night on 'FOX 10 News at 9:00 p.m', and, "We first told you about it yesterday on FOX10TV.com" while presenting updates to reports that they or other members of the operation had presented on previous editions of one of those programs as if every member of their audience was actually watching and/or listening to them present those reports.
            • One of the news presenters on the local news program that appeared on the main broadcast channel for WALA-TV during the hour of 9:00 p.m. on the Tuesday of the eleventh day of April for this calendar year (Bob Grip on "FOX 10 News at 9:00 p.m.") said a news "story" that he posted a message about on a World Wide Web site named Twitter earlier that day "blew up" afterwards. he posted a message about it on a World Wide Web site named Twitter earlier that day.

            • The main broadcast channel for WPMI-TV did not have a local news program follow the special sports programming it had from their main provider of network programming this past Saturday in spite of one of the announcers for the sports programming telling its audience to "stay tuned" for either their "local news" or a program named "NBC Nightly News" (the program that actually followed was an episode of a syndicated TV program named "Two and a Half Men").
