The Oklahoma news anchor stumbles over her words as she suffers a stroke while on the air live

‘I’m sorry, something’s wrong with me this morning’: The Oklahoma news anchor suffers a stroke live on air as she stumbles over her words

  • Julie Chin of NBC affiliate KJRH in Tulsa was suddenly unable to speak the words she read from her teleprompter during the show
  • Confused and stuttering, Chin tried to continue the transmission but soon found that she was completely unable to speak what she was reading
  • Chin finally said she couldn’t go ahead and sent the transmission to the weather team
  • However, the anchor did not return when the weather cleared as staff had called 9-11 and she was taken to a hospital
  • On Sunday, Chin said doctors told her she had suffered the “beginnings” of a stroke and confirmed she was fine and would return to work soon

An Oklahoma news anchor suffered the beginnings of a mid-air stroke, causing her to trip over her words and force her to take a break from broadcast Saturday morning.

Julie Chin of NBC affiliate KJRH in Tulsa was delivering a story about NASA’s canceled Artemis I launch when she was suddenly unable to speak the words she read from her teleprompter.

Confused and stuttering, Chin tried to move the show forward, but soon found herself unable to say her script out loud.

“I’m sorry, something happened to me this morning and I apologize to everyone,” she finally said, walking away from the script and turning the broadcast over to the weather team. ‘Let’s just go ahead and forward it to meteorologist Annie Braun.’

Brown seamlessly took over as Chin was heard trying to apologize off-camera.

“Julie, we love you so much, we love you so much,” Brown said with a laugh as the show cut to her. “We all have those days,” Brown continued.

But it wasn’t just one of those days for Chin, who never returned to the airwaves after the weather report. Instead, colleagues at the editorial office called 9-11 and Chin was taken to the hospital.

On Sunday night, Chin took to Facebook to explain that she is in good health and that the doctor believes she had “early strokes but not a full stroke.”

“I’m happy to report that my tests have all turned out great. At this point, doctors believe I’ve had the beginnings of a stroke, but not a full stroke,” she wrote. “There are still many questions and many to pursue, but overall I should be fine. ‘

Chin explained that she felt fine before the show, but her condition suddenly and rapidly deteriorated.

“The episode seemed to have come out of nowhere. I felt great before our show. However, over the course of a few minutes during our newscast, things began to happen. First, I lost partial vision in one eye. A little later my hand and arm went numb.”

“Then I knew I was in big trouble when my mouth didn’t say the words that were on the teleprompter right in front of me. If you were watching Saturday morning you know how desperately I tried to get the show moving, but the words just wouldn’t come.

She also thanked a number of her colleagues who she said recognized what was happening and took action.

“I am so grateful for your quick action. I’ve always said I work on the best team and that’s another reason for that,” she wrote.

Chin noted that while she was still in the hospital and undergoing some tests, she planned to be back on camera within a few days.

“My dad jokes that this is the first long time I’ve been alone since my son was born, and he’s right,” she said.

Signs that you are about to have a stroke

When you have a stroke, time is of the essence – the sooner you can seek treatment, the less damage your mind will suffer. According to the CDC, if you notice any of the following happening suddenly, you should stop what you’re doing, stop what you’re doing, and seek help right away:

– Sudden numbness and weakness in the face, arms or legs. Often the numbness is concentrated on one side of the body

– Difficulty seeing with one or both eyes

– Sudden confusion, difficulty speaking, communicating, or understanding the language

– Sudden severe headache with no obvious cause

– Sudden weakness, dizziness, loss of balance or inability to walk
