CNN’s Brooke Baldwin traditionally anchors CNN Newsroom weekdays from 2 -4 p.m. ET at the CNN New York studios.
And that was the case once again today…for a while.
At 2:33 p.m. ET, Baldwin teased a segment about President Trump’s visit to the border, and then went to commercial break.
Fast forward to 2:37 p.m. ET, and CNN’s 1 p.m. anchor Brianna Keilar is shown anchoring live from the network’s DC bureau.
As of 3:55 p.m. ET, Keilar was still on-air.
TVNewser has reached out to CNN for comment, and we will update this item when we hear back.
UPDATE: 4:10 p.m. ET: CNN tells TVNewser that Brooke “was not feeling well, so Brianna took over for her.”
Three minutes later, Baldwin confirmed her illness via Twitter:
Ocular migraine. I get ‘em about once a year. And in 20 years of doing live TV… that had never happened on set til today. I suddenly couldn’t see. HUGE props to my girl @brikeilarcnn for hopping in the seat with 2 mins notice. Going home to sit in the dark. Back tomorrow. Xoxo https://t.co/Q7679gkcLo
