    Commentary: Premonitions of changes in branding at WKRG-TV and professionalism at WALA-TV

    I had noticed the main broadcast channel for WKRG-TV having an advertisement for a certain TV program of theirs involving a former nickname for the broadcast operation being said in reference to the program earlier this calendar week -- "WKRG 5" for "WKRG 5 Sports Overtime" -- even though certain members of their news operation had usually promoted it without the "5" in some of the local news programming they had before its broadcast on the Sunday of the first day of this April (personally I had never liked that nickname (or their current nicknames: "WKRG News 5" and "News 5") and had hoped that this is not a sign of being used as a nickname for all of their programming in the future (personally I would rather hear the name "NewsCenter 5" being used in reference to their news programs, and the names "WKRG-TV5" and "TV5" being used in reference to their programming in general in the future)).
     ________________________________________________________________________________
    I had found the following presentations for the local news programs WALA-TV had in their programming during the hour of 9:00 p.m. and the first half of the hour of 10:00 p.m. on the Thursday of the fifth day of this April ("FOX 10 News at 9:00 p.m." and "FOX 10 News at 10:00 p.m" respectively) very unprofessional, ridiculous, and premonitious for their news operation (especially since both of them usually appeared to had involved a certain person (named Byron Day) who was usually not a presenter or reporter for the broadcasts they had during those periods of time before this calendar week in recent times and the possibility of his being a permanent replacement for a certain person (named Bob Grip) who was usually a news presenter for other broadcasts of them before this calendar week in recent times (this is in addition to some broadcasts of one of those programs (the second one mentioned) for this calendar week often appearing to have had laughter of the first person mentioned in certain parts of them in which they usually did not have laughter in the broadcasts they had before this calendar week in recent times (such as reports of certain events having occurred)): 

    (presentation for first program mentioned)
     
    Lenise Ligon: A war of words between superstars of the athletic world, NBA legend LeBron James and Alabama's legendary head coach Nick Saban, is over apparently. Byron Day in the newsroom with the latest on this issue that's going on. It's been like back and forward between these two guys.

    Byron Day: Yeah, Lenise, it really has. It's not exactly, you know, huge international news, but we're talking scissors at ten paces or shoot out at the shop here -- now here's the story, LeBron James, the basketball superstar, has an Internet show called 'The Shop" -- here you see it -- it features some of his fellow NBA stars and others just talking about life, movies, or whatever else comes to mind -- all set in a barbershop. Coach Saban's show is also set in a barbershop -- the one that's inside the Bama football complex in Tuscaloosa; it's called 'Shop Talk' and it features former Bama stars talking about life, movies, and whatever else comes to mind. LeBron thought Saban's show was too much like his, had his lawyers send a letter telling the Bama coach to clip his show -- Saban refused telling LeBron to cut it out, then the real show was on...

    (the program appeared to have a video of a certain person with digital graphics and texts of "NICK SABAN" and "ALABAMA HEAD COACH" and a video of a certain other version with digital graphics and text of "LEBRON JAMES" and "NBA SUPERSTAR" immediately afterwards)

    Byron Day: Ha, Saban said he's going to keep producing "Shop Talk" and he [had], but for now it's called "Bama Cuts"; the newest edition dropped last night. No word from LeBron if he likes this newest cut from Saban. Copyright attorneys had pretty much said LeBron has no case if he'd took Coach Saban to court, however, a Mister Floyd Lawson, a barber from Mayberry, North Carolina, says he may sue both of these guys for copyright infringement. Lenise, back to you.

    (note #1: the program appeared to have had an image of a certain fictional character named  "Floyd Lawson" for a TV program named "The Andy Griffith Show" for the part of the presentation mentioned above this sentence)


    (presentation for second program mentioned)

    Byron Day: Peace may finally be at hand and we're not talking about President Trump shutting down his Twitter account; the war of words between superstars of the athletic world, NBA legend LeBron James and Bama's legendary head football coach Nick Saban, just might be over -- we're talking scissors at ten paces or shootout at the shop -- the story is this: LeBron, the basketball superstar, has an Internet show called "The Shop"; it features some of his fellow NBA stars and movie stars just talking about life, movies, and whatever else comes to mind; all set in a barber shop. Coach Saban's Internet show is also set in a barber shop featuring former Bama stars -- now LeBron thought Coach's show was too much like his,; had his lawyers send a strongly-worded warning to Saban, who was not amused...
    (the program appeared to have a video of a certain person with digital graphics and texts of "NICK SABAN" and "ALABAMA HEAD COACH" and a video of a certain other version with digital graphics and text of "LEBRON JAMES" and "NBA SUPERSTAR" immediately afterwards)

    Byron Day: As he promised, Saban's show is still running, but now it's called "Bama Cuts". Copyright lawyers have pretty much said LeBron has no case if he'd took Saban to court; however, Mister Floyd Lawson, a barber from Mayberry, North Carolina, says he may sue both of these guys for copyright infringement.

    (note #2: the program appeared to have had the image mentioned in the previous note for this commentary for the part of the presentation mentioned above this sentence) 

    (note #3: the program appeared to have had audio of one of its other contributors (a weather reporter named Michael White) saying, "Oh, LeBron needs to be more worried about getting that next ring than coming after Coach" afterwards for a part of it related to weather)
