CHICAGO — Another day, another flub on Chicago’s WGN Morning News.
During Wednesday’s 9 a.m. newscast, anchor Robin Baumgarten was reading a story about delightfully named towns in Pennsylvania Dutch Country. It was a follow-up to a story WGN aired Tuesday about a Christmas Center in Paradise, Penn.
The first town name up in our list: Lititz. It’s normally pronounced “lih-its,” but that’s not what Robin said. Not even close.
Her pronunciation drew laughs from co-anchors Paul Konrad and Larry Potash, with Larry quickly saying, “That’s not right…”
The producer eventually corrected them, but not before the anchors had a few belly laughs on live TV.
Check out the hilarity in the player above.
Editor’s Note: In the video, a image of Ephrata, Penn., is shown when the town of Blue Ball is discussed. WGN regrets the error.
