Fox Announcer Makes Ron Burgundy-Style Teleprompter Mishap

Andrew Gould@AndrewGould4Featured ColumnistOctober 16, 2017

Dick Stockton is in a glass case of emotion after an on-air blunder.

The teleprompter apparently directed the Fox broadcaster to ad-lib a line related to the graphic promoting its halftime show. He did not pick up the suggestion, instead reading, “Look on graphic for the final two bullet points.”

Now that his coworkers know he will read anything put on that teleprompter, Stockton better beware the same sabotage that befell Anchorman's Ron Burgundy.
