Can You Pass the Prompter Test? Anchor Shows How Hard It Is on TikTok

By Kevin Eck 

KSBY anchor Megan Healy has a TikTok challenge for local news nerds around the country.

In a series she’s calling the Prompter Test, Healy records a shot of the prompter scrolling at the speed she normally uses during the newscast she anchors and challenges viewers to read along.

Her latest test has more than 15,000 likes.


The reaction from fellow TikTokers has ranged from “I nailed it first try,”  to “Absolutely would have been fired,” to “Are you supposed to read VO+SLAB?”

Healy started at the San Luis Obispo, Calif. NBC affiliate as a multimedia journalist in 2018 and was promoted to weekend anchor one year later.
