WFNA-TV started broadcasting "RightThisMinute", a syndicated news program, on a regular basis by Monday, August 26th, in accordance with their amended regular programming schedule for Monday through Friday that had the program scheduled for 7:00 a.m. and 7:30 a.m.
The program WFNA-TV used to broadcast at 7:00 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. from Monday through Friday "The Daily Buzz", a syndicated news program that used to be broadcast live at 7:00 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. in addition to its current timeslots of 5:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. Now they would only broadcast a recorded version of the program between 5:00 a.m and 7:00 a.m. from Monday through Friday since production on the program was scheduled to begin at 4:00 a.m. and end by 6:00 a.m. from Monday through Friday.
According to TitanTV, WFNA-TV's companion* WALA-TV had plans to broadcast "RightThisMinute" on Saturday, September 14th, at 3:00 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. since the FOX Broadcasting Company, the provider of WALA-TV's network programming, had planned on ending the baseball programming they had planned on providing that day by 3:00 p.m. (unless the game they would provide ends shortly before or after 3:00 p.m.), and planned to shorten the weekly programming block that usually included the animated programs "Axe Cop" and "High School USA" by 30 minutes by the Saturday before then (WALA-TV usually broadcast the programming block from 10:30 p.m. until 12:00 a.m.).
*WFNA-TV and WALA-TV are members of the same company, LIN Media, and they operate from the same building in Mobile.
