Working Without Prompter

WMBD apparently had the wrong show in prompter for the first several stories. It was fixed by the time they got to the Vioxx story. Amy handled it really well. First of all she realized after reading the first sentence that the wrong show was loaded. She worked well from scripts for the next bunch.

This is one of those things that for an anchor is actually a good thing once in a while. Of course you always want the right show loaded, but having to deal with a little on the job adversity keeps you on your toes and ready to deal should the prompter go down in the middle of a show or something.
