- According to KPRC-TV in Houston, Texas, WALA-TV's last sports reporter Simone Eli recently accepted a new position in sports reporting in their company and made a plan to relocate to Houston in order to fill the position (this corresponds with a message attributed to her on her official Twitter page that was posted this past Monday, July 14th).
- WALA-TV's last weekday broadcast of the syndicated TV game show "Wheel of Fortune" was about eight hours later than usual (it took place today between 2:30 a.m. and 3:00 a.m). The reason for this was due to their plan to broadcast baseball programming from the FOX Broadcasting Company that was expected to start at the beginning of the time period they had normally used for broadcasting "Wheel of Fortune" from Monday through Friday (6:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.).
- One of the hosts for WALA-TV's local entertainment and lifestyle program (Joe Emer was the name of the host; "Studio 10" was the name of the program) mentioned Pat Greenwood of WPMI-TV's news department and the University of South Alabama's athletics department on the program today as part of a report about the university's new broadcast plans for their football, baseball, and basketball teams since one of those plans was to have Pat Greenwood and two other local broadcasters (Michael Brannon of WALA-TV's news department and J. D. Byars of the university's athletics department) announce football games involving the football team through radio broadcasts on a regular basis during the next collegiate football season for the team (note: Pat Greenwood had planned on leaving his position at WPMI-TV by the end of July in order to devote more time to his positions at the university).
