- Mel Showers of WKRG-TV's news department told his audience for the local 10:00 p.m. newscast he presented for WKRG-TV this past Tuesday, July 22nd, that WKRG-TV was the only station from Alabama to be represented at the burial ceremony for the body of Jeremiah Denton, a former member of the Senate of the United States and the Navy of the United States from Mobile, at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia.
- WKRG-TV's local 6:00 p.m. newscast for this past Tuesday had a video recording from their archive dated 1980 with Jeremiah Denton in Mobile campaigning for the position in the Senate of the United States he would eventually win in an election that year.
- Michael Brannon of WALA-TV's news department assumed the role of sports reporter to help WALA-TV provide reports about the Southeastern Conference's gathering of folks representing news agencies and collegiate athletics departments that took place in Birmingham, Alabama during the previous calendar week and the one held in New Orleans, Louisiana by the Sun Belt Conference this past Tuesday (the gatherings were promoted as "media day" events) since WALA-TV had no regular sports reporters by the times those gatherings took place (the last time WALA-TV had a regular sports reporter was back in June).
