"Good evening, tonight I’m going to sound like a drunk."

WIN Director of News Stewart Richmond issued a statement after the broadcast saying the anchor was embarrassed by the error.

This is a newsreader who sets a very high standard for herself. To have it go to air when it was not intended to, has been more than embarrassing for her.

Kerryn has been presenting news for over two decades and has never put a foot wrong. I'm sure our viewers will understand.
