WALA-TV and WPMI-TV in Mobile and WEAR-TV in Pensacola, Florida (southeast of Mobile) used censored versions of a video recording of the robbery that took place at a Boost Mobile store in Pensacola during the midday hours of this past Wednesday, June 18th, as part of their local news programming that day (the face of the victim of the robbery was blurred in their versions of the video). WKRG-TV in Mobile was the only local TV station to have not broadcast a censored version of the video in their own local news programming that day.

You may access each station's version of the video through their official World Wide Web site by selecting their call letters in the first paragraph of this article. The pages with the videos also have descriptions of the robbery from the perspectives of their respective stations.

(update for Friday, June 20th: WPMI-TV's local 9:00 p.m. news program for their companion station WJTC-TV this past Thursday, June 19th, had an uncensored version of the video as part of a report about the victim of the robbery and the arrest of a person suspected of robbing her)
