On Saturday, September 14th, Peter Albrecht, the regular news presenter for WKRG-TV's 5:00 p.m. news program for Monday through Friday, helped Avery Cotton, the regular news presenter for the station's weekend news programs, present news for the local news program the station produced between 6:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. after their broadcast of football programming from the Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) that included a game between the football teams from the University of Alabama (the Crimson Tide) and Texas Agricultural & Mechanical University (the Aggies).
I found the pairing of Peter Albrecht and Avery Cotton very interesting because Peter Albrecht used to present news with Avery Cotton's mother Drexel Gilbert on a regular basis for WPMI-TV as part of their local 6:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. news programs for Monday through Friday. Peter Albrecht also used to present news for WKRG-TV's weekend news programs as part of his first tenure with them (from 1990 until 2000) before being promoted to their 5:00 p.m. news program for Monday through Friday. Coincidentally Drexel Gilbert was a news presenter for WKRG-TV's morning and noon news programs for Monday through Friday during Peter Albrecht's first tenure until she decided to leave those positions in order to be a "full-time mother" to Avery Cotton and her other daughter Lauren Cotton.
