And the thing is they were actually double boxing to please the sports viewer. If I was running the station at the time I would have put the program in the little box or preempt it totally and shift it to the .2. However CBS is picky when it comes to moving programming from the main channel even a marquee event such as The Masters, they’d probably be OK preempting it all together.

The station in question is not owned by CBS, so network programming (including sporting events) are at the mercy of local alerts.

True and CBS O&Os do break in. I was saying as a policy CBS does not allow you to change the channel (to a sub channel) of a program or reair it after late night or on Saturday. It affects every station including O&Os who say we are bound by our contract that we cannot shift programming.

During local preseason NFL or other acquired games the NBC affiliate can by their contract shift programming to a sub channel and usually replays the missed program during primetime on Saturdays (which is usually reruns). They do this for sports and breaking news.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

As Hurricane Dorian approaches the Florida multiple tv stations up and down the coast will be covering the storm. The Weather Channel aside, these local stations will be in rolling coverage and always offer the best coverage than the national networks, that can only over "overview coverage" and nothing really specific.
Depending on the area of landfall will dictate which markets go into live rolling coverage.

Here is a selection of some stations, keep in mind this is not all the stations. And that many stations have become geoblocked over the last few years. (annoying). No sure if NEWSON is available on Roku outside North America. Try to search for it on private channels. They will have a specific channel dedicated to local rolling coverage.
Also livestream.com will have streams from local station. Usually the Fox Affiliates are available in each market on LIVESTREAM.COM
