NAPLES, FLA. — At 10:45pm local time Wednesday (9/16), something odd was impacting the 10pm newscast for a TV station owned by The E.W. Scripps Co.
Instead of news anchor Jane Monreal — who began her career at KFWB-AM 980 in Los Angeles and transitioned to television at KABC-7 — and 17-year veteran Patrick Nolan offering up the latest headlines and features, Scripps’ syndicated newsmagazine The List was on the air.
What was going on? WFTX-TV in Fort Myers was, in its own words, “experiencing an interruption due to technical difficulties.”
It’s now known that this iPhone “Program Note” dispatched Wednesday night was an understatement.
