On Friday, September 6th, WALA-TV stopped broadcasting their local entertainment and lifestyle program "Studio 10" early sometime between 8:30 a.m. and 8:50 a.m. in order to broadcast special news programming from the FOX Broadcasting Company about Barack Obama, the president the United States, speaking at a news conference held at the Group of 20 Conference (or G20 Conference for short) in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
Production on "Studio 10" continued while the station was broadcasting the special news programming since they had planned on using the segments produced during that time for their companion WFNA-TV's broadcast of the program (including the segments that were broadcast live) between 11:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. (WALA-TV and WFNA-TV are members of the same company, LIN Media, and they operate from the same building in Mobile).
After the news programming ended sometime between 9:30 a.m. and 9:48 a.m., the station started broadcasting the remaining portions of the edition of the syndicated discussion program "The Jeff Probst Show" they had originally planned on broadcasting in its entirety during the hour of 9:00 a.m. on September 6th. Coincidentally this was the last day for the station to broadcast "The Jeff Probst Show" due to its cancellation and their plan to broadcast "Bethenny", a new syndicated discussion program, in its place on a regular basis (this was also the last day for WFNA-TV to broadcast a recording a "Studio 10").
