According to WPMI-TV, they had planned on sharing the position of broadcasting the syndicated discussion program "Katie" for the Mobile, Alabama-Pensacola TV market with their companion WEAR-TV from Monday, September 9th, until Friday, September 13th, before leaving the position to them for the 2013-2014 TV season (WEAR-TV had originally planned to start broadcasting "Katie" on a regular basis on Monday, September 16th).
According to the TV programming guides for the stations provided by Zap2it and TitanTV, both stations had planned on broadcasting same editions of "Katie" during the same time (2:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.) period from September 9th until September 13th and that WEAR-TV would continue to broadcast the program in that time period after WPMI-TV leaves the position of broadcasting the program to them.
By the time WEAR-TV starts broadcasting "Katie" alone in this market on a regular basis, WPMI-TV would have begun broadcasting their replacement for "Katie" on a regular basis; a new syndicated discussion program titled "The Queen Latifah Show" (ironically WPMI-TV would be sharing the position of broadcasting the new program for this TV market with their other companion WFGX-TV on a permanent basis, except WFGX-TV would be broadcasting the program between 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. from Monday through Friday)
*WPMI-TV, WEAR-TV, and WFGX-TV are members of the same company, the Sinclair Broadcast Group.
