KCBS reporter Serene Branson talks her way into post-Grammy drama
KCBS-TV reporter Serene Branson sparked some unexpected drama following the Grammy Awards when she slurred her words and appeared to speak gibberish during a live report.
Branson was reporting outside the Staples Center at the top of the 11:30 p.m. broadcast and was appearently trying to talk about the hoopla during the award show when her words became unintelligible. Some startled viewers thought she may have suffered a stroke during the report.
A KCBS spokesman released a statement that Branson was examined by paramedics on the scene immediately following the broadcast. “Her vital signs were normal,” the statement said. “She was not hospitalized. As a precautionary measure, a colleague gave her a ride home, and she says she is feeling fine this morning.”
