News for Monday, March 5th, 2018

  • There appeared to had been a World Wide Web site related to a former manager of two radio stations that used to exist in the city of Mobile in southwest Alabama under the names WABB-AM and WABB-FM in years past (note: the address for the site appeared to had been based on some personal names for her ("Betsy" and "Dittman" for http://www.betsydittman.com)).
  • Some guides to the main broadcast channel for WPMI-TV for the Saturday of the third day of this March from some World Wide Web sites named Zap2it and TitanTV appeared to have had a name not normally used in reference to one of the local news programs usually listed in some previous guides of theirs to the channel in recent times ("NBC15 Early News" for the program listed for the first half of the hour of 5:00 p.m. for that Saturday).
  • The local news program that appeared on the main broadcast channel for WKRG-TV during the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. on the Sunday of the fourth day of this March ("WKRG News 5 This Morning: Sunday") appeared to have had its news presenter (Chad Petri) telling one of its reporters (a weather reporter named Christina Andress), "Then suddenly you know what a record is -- is there -- it's -- I mean it's just old technology -- who even knows what records are" after having the reporter saying, "I probably sound like a broken record saying the same thing every day..." for a part of it related to weather before having her saying, "He's making fun of me; that's where we're going on this Sunday morning" immediately afterwards.
(*the program had some graphics involving text of "Bob Brazier Dies at 80" and "FIRST BLACK REPORTER IN MOBILE MARKET" over an image similar to the one accessible through this hyperlink before having a smaller version of it surrounded by text of it "FIRST BLACK REPORTER IN MOBILE DIES", "Bob Brazier", "Dec 21 1937 - Feb 27, 2018", "WKRG Reporter 1969 - 1980"**, "Funeral Tomorrow at 2 PM", and "Cathedral Basilica of Immaculate Conception" over some other graphics)

(**one of the local news programs WKRG-TV had in their programming in the calendar year 2005 (specifically the one they had in their programming during the first and second halves of the hour of 9:00 a.m. for the Tuesday of the twelfth day of the month of July for that year ("WKRG News 5 at Nine")) appeared to have an interview with the aforementioned Bob Brazier in which the calendar years 1969 and 1979 were used in reference to the span of his tenure with their broadcast operation)
