A Chicago Station Mixes Up Pyeongchang with P.F. Chang

The host city of the 2018 Winter Olympics, Pyeongchang, and the Chinese restaurant chain, P.F. Chang sort of look alike. Sort of.

And over the weekend, WLS-TV the ABC affiliate in Chicago ran a graphic that accidentally had P.F. Chang 2018 instead of the name of host city
Pyeongchang.

According to the Chicago Tribune, the graphic aired during the Saturday morning newscast. The same graphic was used–satirically–by Mark Giangreco during his sports segment Friday night.

A WLS spokesperson said it remained in the graphics mix, and ended up on air, mistakenly.
