(note: the following observations pertain to the report about WALA-TV's pre-emption of their local entertainment and lifestyle program ("Studio 10") for a news conference on the Tuesday of August 12th, 2014, in the article titled "News from the Mobile TV Examiner for Tuesday, August 12th, 2014")

  • Observation #1: one of the hosts for local entertainment and lifestyle program introduced the news presenters for WALA-TV's local morning news program ("FOX 10 News in the Morning") as part of their station's transition from their program to the news conference.
  • Observation #2: one of the morning news presenters mentioned the current time as if he were still on the morning news program since he and he partner usually mentioned the current time every few minutes during the program.
  • Observation #3: the hosts for the local entertainment and lifestyle program did not get the chance to end their program properly due to the news conference ending at 10:03 a.m. and their station's decision to begin broadcasting the syndicated discussion program that was originally scheduled to begin three minutes earlier ("The Wendy Williams Show") immediately after their program.
