LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Reporter Serene Branson is fine after a slurring Grammys speech (video below) last night. CBS2 reporter Serene Branson was reportedly checked initially by medical personnel following the CBS2 broadcast but has since confirmed that she is fine.
Branson (photos below) appeared live for CBS 2 News Los Angeles, covering the telecast. During the post-telecast recap, a CBS2 studio anchor sent the report to Branson who appeared outside the Los Angeles venue in a full winter’s jacket.
Branson appeared calm, smiling, and apparently fine. But shortly after she began speaking, it was apparent something had clearly gone wrong. With the exception of “very”, not one word in her sentence was intelligible. Branson’s facial reaction changed from smiles to frustration as she realized she was apparently unable to formulate a word.
The DailyRecord.co.uk incorrectly reported that “she may have suffered a stroke”. Instead, it was just a case of the nerves.
As the Daily News has updated , contrary to a news “report from London’s Daily Telegraph that she was hospitalized, Branson may have merely been checked by EMT personnel and sent home with a friend, according to Kristin Cruz, co-host of the Mark & Kristin Show on KOST 103.5 in Los Angeles.”
