- The news presenters and weather reporters for WKRG-TV and WALA-TV's local morning news programs ("WKRG News 5 This Morning" and "FOX 10 News in the Morning" respectively) used today's edition of their respective programs to remind their audiences about today being the ninth anniversary of a tropical cyclone named "Katrina" making its arrival along the northern gulf coast of the United States since parts of their local broadcast areas were affected by it.
- WPMI-TV did not broadcast all of the National Broadcasting Company's (NBC) live coverage of a news conference with the president of the United States (Barack Obama) this past Thursday, August 28th, for they had returned to regular programming by the time both the news conference and the coverage had ended (WKRG-TV and WEAR-TV continued to broadcast live coverage of the news conference from their respective primary providers of network programming afterwards (the Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) and the American Broadcasting Company (ABC)).
- WPMI-TV was set to broadcast the National Broadcasting Company's primetime programming for this past Thursday today in recorded form between 1:07 a.m. and 4:00 a.m.* instead of when the programming was being provided to them and other TV stations in the Central time zone that Thursday (between 7:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.) due to their plan to broadcast Cox Sports Television's live coverage of a professional football game with the Saints of New Orleans, Louisiana and the Ravens of Baltimore, Maryland in the same time period.
*WPMI-TV would usually have segments for the fourth hour of the most recent edition of the network news program "Today" between 1:07 a.m. and 2:00 a.m, the network financial advice program "Mad Money" between 2:00 a.m. and 3:00 a.m., the most recent edition of their local 10:00 p.m. news program ("Local 15 News at 10:00 p.m.") between 3:00 a.m. and 3:30 a.m., and a paid commercial program between 3:30 a.m. and 4:00 a.m. from Tuesday through Saturday.
(correction note: the phrase "today being the ninth anniversary of a tropical cyclone named "Katrina" making its arrival in the United States" in the original version of the article was corrected since the cyclone had made its arrival through the state of Florida days earlier before moving over the Gulf of Mexico and toward the states of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama).
