WPMI-TV's plans for disseminating news about the mayoral and city council elections scheduled to take place in Mobile on Tuesday, August 27th, include having their companion* WJTC-TV broadcast the results of the elections as part of a special news program scheduled to begin at 9:00 p.m. and end by 10:00 p.m. on the day of the elections (WPMI-TV would continue to disseminate news about the elections during their regular 10:00 p.m. news program on their own broadcast channel afterwards). That means the syndicated comedic TV programs WJTC-TV usually broadcast in that time period on Tuesday would be pre-empted ("Family Guy" and "American Dad!" respectively) and residents in the broadcast area of the station would have a total of three local TV news programs from which to choose during that time period (WALA-TV and WFGX-TV** usually broadcast local news programs at 9:00 p.m. from Monday through Friday).
*WPMI-TV and WJTC-TV are members of the same company, the Sinclair Broadcast Group, and they operate from the same building in Mobile
**WFGX-TV is also part of the Sinclair Broadcast Group, along with WEAR-TV, the producers of the 9:00 p.m. news program for WFGX-TV.
