Video: ‘Good evening. Tonight, I’m going to sound like a drunk’ says Aussie news reader after technical glitch
Thanks to a technical glitch that occurred on the Aussie news station WIN during the week, a newsreader was left warning viewers that she was ‘going to sound like a drunk’.
The WIN news presenter Kerryn Johnston was left feeling a little red-faced yesterday after a late night broadcast, which aired at 12am on Wednesday night, featured the newscaster saying, “Good evening. Tonight I’m going to sound like a drunk”. Take a look…
In fairness to Kerryn, she didn’t say it on live TV. The footage that was aired at midnight was from a pre-recorded rehearsal for the 6.30pm news, but the editors obviously cut the recording in the wrong place and included Kerryn’s ‘drunk’ statement.
The WIN Network's Director of News Stewart Richmond said, “This is a newsreader who sets a very high standard for herself. To have it go to air when it was not intended to has been more than embarrassing for her.
"Kerryn has been presenting news for over two decades and has never put a foot wrong. I'm sure our viewers will understand."
