Ford: No Audio For NBC’s Special Report

By Brian 

What happened to the audio on NBC’s special report about Gerald Ford‘s death?

“I recorded Jay Leno last night and caught NBC’s first report,” an e-mailer says. “Indeed, the first thirty seconds or so were silent as the anchor spoke and images of Ford were displayed.”

In Philadelphia, “NBC broke into Leno with a fuzzy picture and no audio. I saw the banner telling of Ford’s death and switched to CNN,” another e-mailer says.

Other East Coast e-mailers say they experienced it too. (But another e-mailer says the network feeds to Boston and Providence were okay.)
