News for Monday, October 9th, 2017

  • The main broadcast channel for WPMI-TV occasionally had a video with the voice of an announcer claiming one of the local news programs for the local news operation at WPMI-TV ("Local 15 News at 10 [p.m.]"*) was considered the "best newscast at 10:00 p.m." in the state of Alabama by the Alabama Broadcasters Association while an award attributed to the association with some words about it being considered the best "regularly scheduled [TV] newscast" in an awards program for the association appeared. 
  • One of the programming feeds on one of the digital sub-channels for WKRG-TV appeared to had been reformatted between the Wednesday of the fourth day of this October and the Saturday of the seventh day of this October; specifically the one that usually had programs from a national TV programming service named Memorable Entertainment Television (and nicknamed Me-TV) in recent times (it had videos with an aspect ratio of 4 to 3 appear either thinner from left to right or without portions of their top and bottom sides).
  • The main broadcast channel for WFGX-TV appeared to have video of a game of football from a national TV programming service named the Entertainment and Sports Programming Network (ESPN) before having video of another game of football from a separate national TV programming service named Stadium this past Saturday on the seventh day of this October (one of the digital sub-channel for WPMI-TV** had video of the same game at the same time since it was usually set to have programs from Stadium by then in recent times along with digital graphics that did not appear with the video on the channel for WFGX-TV)
  • 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 Monday ("WKRG News 5 at 10") had some of the news presenters for their news operation (Mel Showers, Rose Ann Haven, and Devon Walsh) boasting the operation as part of its broadcasts for that time period this Monday and the Sunday of the eighth day of this October (this is how the one named Devon Walsh did so in its broadcast for that time period this Monday: "Well News 5 is committed to bringing you coverage you can count during all major weather and breaking news situations. During our extended team coverage of 'Hurricane Nate', we were the first to alert you about live tornadoes and we're live all across the gulf coast as flooding started to happen. You can see even more of our 'Nate' coverage on our website, wkrg.com, as well as on our free mobile news app" (this is how the ones named Mel Showers and Rose Ann Haven did so in broadcasts during the same time period on the aforementioned Sunday: Mel Showers: "Well News 5 had you covered for over sixteen (16) hours straight online and on air as the gulf coast braced for 'Hurricane Nate' ". Rose Ann Haven: "That's right, we began our continuous coverage just after the Florida versus LSU game (the one that appeared on their main broadcast channel on the Saturday) where more than a hundred and twenty-one thousand (121,000) of you tuned in to watch us live on Facebook. Many of you watched us on air or shared our Facebook Live coverage more than six-hundred and seventy seven (677) times. We were the only station to stick with the storm until the threat was completely cleared. We appreciate your viewership and we are glad you turned to News 5. We are coverage you can count on, even after the storm".))  
(*the program was renamed "NBC 15 News at 10 [p.m.]" last September)
(**WPMI-TV and WFGX-TV were related to each other due to their being members of a holding company named the Sinclair Broadcast Group)
