Morgan racks up a bad lib
WNBC/Ch. 4 anchor DeMarco Morgan had a moment Sunday night at 6 where he probably wished he could have had a do-over.
“Ad lib to John,” Morgan said, reading from the TelePrompTer, before realizing he said what he should have just read silently.
“You know what,” he said, “I’m reading everything on the prompter.”
What he was supposed to do, of course, was make small talk to introduce weathercaster John Marshall.
“It’s all good,” said Marshall, a real pro, who covered Morgan’s gaffe by suggesting all were tired at that hour.
