- According to a recent Twitter message attributed to Blake Brown, a former news reporter for WKRG-TV, he had recently joined the news department of WPMI-TV shortly after leaving his position at WKRG-TV during the first half of this July.
- On Thursday, July 17th, an administrator for the official Facebook page for WPMI-TV posted a message there about the National Broadcasting Company (NBC) having no plans to provide a new episode of the serial "Days of Our Lives" for them and and their other network stations to broadcast that day (it was provided the next day and uploaded onto the official World Wide Web site for NBC) due to their special network news programming that day about the airplane that crashed in the country Ukraine that day.
- On Thursday, an administrator for the official Facebook page for WKRG-TV posted a message there about the Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) not having permission to give WKRG-TV and some of their network stations another chance to broadcast the episodes of the network serials "The Young and the Restless" and "The Bold and the Beautiful" they had originally planned on providing for them to broadcast that day since their special network news programming about the airplane that crashed in Ukraine prevented them from doing so.
