Both WALA-TV and WFNA-TV were set to broadcast the syndicated theatrical movie "Glory" on Sunday, February 10th, according to the programming guides for both stations provided by Zap2it (see guides for WALA-TV and WFNA-TV). WALA-TV would start broadcasting the movie at 11:00 a.m. and stop by 2:30 p.m.; WFNA-TV would start broadcasting the movie at 3:30 p.m. and stop by 5:00 p.m.
The reason WFNA-TV would be able to broadcast "Glory" one hour after WALA-TV was because both stations had the local broadcast rights to the movie due to LIN Media owning and operating both stations.
