    she seemed upset at the end of the 5:00 broadcast. she muttered "change is all something we are trying to get used to" or something along those lines. maybe just a bad day overall.

    With WNBC in turmoil and they are cutting cost in every department now they can find a unexpectedly reason to free up 2.5 million dollars a year.

    Was she cursing at Chuck? Because Chuck didn't seem to be paying attention, he was reading something when the promo began.

    Looked like Chuck was asleep. What was up with that??

    All in all, WNBC has declined so much.

    From the video, I don't think she was upset about the switch to another video about the cruise ship, b/c that was probably another story tease, to me it was directed at Chuck.

    Eh, so she said the f-word. I say it 15-20 times a day.

    Apparently the video was matching the story until it switched with some woman falling off a ship. She may have been yelling at the director/tape operator/etc.

    Also must have forgot she was LIVE! Is there a reason WNBC was live for a 10:26 tease? Aren't those generally taped?

    After viewing the video, I also think it was directed to Chuck because he was not paying attention. There must be some good excuse for using the F-bomb.

    Well...it is certainly being spun (or assumed) that her outburst was more to do with a technical issue, and not Chuck missing his cue. But it would appear that Chuck was the target of the outburst.

    hmmm... after watching it again, it's hard to ay. Chuck seemed totally zoned out, so it might have been directed towards him.

    Still, I found it quite funny...

    That does bring up a good point. They are usually taped. Did they know they were live, or did they think that it was a recording? Management screwing things up?

    HA HA it was funny...everyone in NYC let us know what happens tonight, for those who dont live in NYC.

    Maybe they should change their slogan: "NBC4: "WHAT THE **** are you doing?":lol:
