Peter Albrecht of WKRG-TV visited WAVH-FM's (106.5) local midday news and discussion program ("Midday Mobile") last Friday, May 30th, to explain a poll conducted for WKRG-TV earlier in the calendar week that involved some of Mobile's registered voters being asked via telephone about whether they would approve of Mobile's previous mayor (Samuel (Sam) Jones) being nominated to the board of the Mobile Area Water and Sewer System or not since some listeners of WAVH-FM's programming (including some callers of their local morning news and discussion program "Mobile Mornings") had expressed concern about the poll's results on the races of the voters since they were not asked about their races (Peter Albrecht said the registered voters were only asked, "Do you approve of Sam Jones' nomination to the water board, yes or no?").
