UPDATE: L.A. TV Reporter Hospitalized After Suffering Stroke During Grammy Coverage


CBS LA reporter Serene Branson was hospitalized after suffering a stroke during an on-air Grammy segment in which she suddenly began speaking gibberish.

UPDATE: According to a rep for KCBS, Branson is not believed to have suffered from a stroke. An ambulance was called and she was examined by paramedics at the scene, but she wasn’t hospitalized, as previously reported.. “Her vital signs were normal,” said the rep. “As a precautionary measure, a colleague gave her a ride home, and she says she is feeling fine this morning.” Glad to hear it!
