WTVT morning anchor Anne Dwyer had an “oops” moment on the Tampa FOX owned station’s ‘Good Day Tampa Bay’ yesterday. Dwyer was teasing an upcoming story about a Florida Lottery winner while going to break, when the control room transitioned to a live shot of feature reporter Charley Belcher. With Belcher full frame, Dwyer said, “This is the most famous woman in Florida right now.”

“Oh, whoa! No You’re not,” said Dwyer. “That’s Charley Belcher.” After acting offended, Belcher later said, “Flag that.” That’ll show up somewhere else I won’t want it to show up.”
