- The cable TV system operated by Comcast Cablevision of Mobile started providing a 16:9 standard-definition version of the Cable and Satellite Public Affairs Network's (C-SPAN) main programming sometime between yesterday evening (Sunday, July 27th) and this morning.
- WPMI-TV stopped broadcasting last night sometime between 11:30 p.m. and 12:30 a.m. (during a syndicated episode of the dramatic TV program "Crime Scene Investigation: Miami") before resuming at 4:31 a.m. about a minute after their local morning news program ("Local 15 Today") began (Deitra Tate of WPMI-TV's weather department was presenting a weather segment for the program when WPMI-TV started broadcasting again; she did not mention it during the segment).
- WALA-TV's "Fugitive Files" segment for this past Wednesday, July 23rd, was directed toward speakers of both English and/or Spanish due to one of the speakers for the segment (an investigator for the police department in Orange Beach, Alabama, southeast of Mobile) saying the fugitive of the report "may be known in the Hispanic community". For example, the speaker's response to his interviewer's (Bob Grip of WALA-TV's news department) question about the kind of message he would deliver to "the Hispanic community" as to why they should help "turn in" the fugitive was overdubbed by a Spanish interpretation of his response (the response was also displayed in English while the interpreter was speaking).
