On Friday, March 15th, an advertisement for certified meteorologists to apply for the position of weather reporter at WALA-TV was posted on the official World Wide Web site for the station and the official site for the Alabama Broadcasters Association. Visitors of the site for WALA-TV were able to access to advertisement located there by visiting its "About Us" section while visitors of the site for the Alabama Broadcasters Association were able to access the advertisement located there by visiting its "Job Bank" section.
