On Tuesday, September 24th, WALA-TV interrupted their regular programming between 9:00 a.m. and 9:24 a.m. (including "Bethenny", a syndicated discussion program) to broadcast special news programming from the FOX Broadcasting Company that included live video of Barack Obama, the president of the United States, speaking to the general assembly of the United Nations in New York, New York..
None of the other local TV stations that usually broadcast special news programming from national broadcasting companies like the FOX Broadcasting Company had any special programming about the speech at the same time as WALA-TV. They were still broadcasting their regular programs by then.
WALA-TV returned to broadcasting regular programming shortly after the end of the speech by 9:56 a.m. (the final moments of "Bethenny" were shown after the special news programming).
