By Tuesday, December 3rd, WPMI-TV had changed the way they would usually end their local 12:00 p.m. news program ("Local 15 News at Noon") by broadcasting a segment with their weather reporter Kelly Foster talking to a guest representing a business in their local broadcast area about a product from that business shortly after broadcasting a segment in which the program appeared to be all ready about to end with the news presenter for the program signing off while copyright information for the program appeared in the form of a superimposed graphic.

Kelly Foster usually began her segments by saying, "Welcome back" and, "We are showcasing some of our favorite things here at Local 15" and usually ended them by directing her audience to the "Favorite Things" section of the official World Wide Web site for her station.
