- Kelly Foster of WPMI-TV's weather department was one of the substitute news presenters for this past Monday's edition of WPMI-TV's local 6:30 p.m. news program ("Local 15 News at 6:30 p.m.") for their companion station WJTC-TV while its regular news presenter (Greg Peterson of WPMI-TV's news department) was on vacation that day (Kelly Foster presented the first news segment to be broadcast after the program's first commercial break along with all of the program's weather segments. As for the person who presented the other news segments, that was Derrick Rose of WPMI-TV's news department.).
- Memorable Entertainment Television (also known as Me-TV) had a plan to start providing some of their network stations the comedic program "Mayberry R. F. D." on a weekday basis this past Monday as long as each of those stations either had a deal to broadcast episodes of the program's predecessor, "The Andy Griffith Show" (another comedic program), or a neighboring station with such a deal in their TV market. This explains why WKRG-TV had two episodes of "Mayberry R. F. D." on their digital sub-channel for Memorable Entertainment Television's programming (radio frequency channel 27-3/virtual channel 5-3) this past Monday between 7:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. rather than the episodes of "The Andy Griffith Show" Memorable Entertainment Television had provided to some of their other affiliates in that time period since they still had their own deal to broadcast episodes of "The Andy Griffith Show" locally their main broadcast channel (radio frequency channel 27-1/virtual channel 5-1).
(amendment note: the report about Memorable Entertainment Television was amended for clarity and for the inclusion of details about their network presentations of "The Andy Griffith Show")
