At 7am on Monday, we heard Dale Enoch of I95 tell his listeners that investigations had been launched into the "crib death of an 8 year old infant".
"Nah!" you protest. "Dale wouldn't say a thing like that! With all his experience, he wouldn't make such a mistake!".
We are absolutely sure he said it because he read it in the headlines at the beginning of the newscast, he said it while reading the story, and lo and behold he read it in the headlines again at the end of the newscast.
So. There was no one in the newsroom at the time who picked up that mistake and decided to take matters into their own hands and just print an amended headlines page for him to read at the end of the newscast? Steups!
Dale tell your reporters to be more careful, and make sure to triple check the scripts before you read them.
