News for Wednesday, June 14th, 2017

  • A former sports reporter for the local news operation at WKRG-TV (named (James) Scott Hunter) was part of a news report for 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 Tuesday on the thirteenth day of this June ("WKRG News 5 at 5"). 
  • A Facebook page and a Twitter page attributed to WAVH-FM had some messages about a local radio program of theirs ("Mobile Mornings") having a member of the House of Representatives of the United States from Alabama (named Mo Brooks) talk about having been part of an incident involving a series of shootings on a baseball field in the state of Virginia earlier this Wednesday (they also had hyperlinks to a recording of this discussion on a part of the World Wide Web normally used to archive local radio programs for WAVH-FM in recent times).** 
  • The local news program that appeared on the main broadcast channel for WALA-TV during the hour of 7:00 a.m. this Wednesday ("FOX 10 News at 7:00 a.m.") was replaced by special news programming from their main provider of network programming (the FOX Broadcasting Company) that appeared to support the subject of the discussion mentioned in the previous paragraph about six to ten minutes after the beginning of the second half of that hour (some of that programming was streamed onto a Facebook page attributed to WALA-TV).
(*the audio involved a profane word commonly used to mean "nonsense" (it was not censored in a recording of the meeting uploaded onto a YouTube channel attributed to the government of the city of Mobile))

(**WKRG-TV had some reports about the discussion and some audio of it in their local news programming for this Wednesday (a World Wide Web site attributed to WKRG-TV even had its own report about it).
