CNN anchor suffers migraine minutes before air

CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin missed anchoring her block of “CNN Newsroom” Thursday, Jan. 10, 2019, thanks to a migraine.

  • After someone going by the name of Scott Harvey on Twitter posted a photo of her face on the side of a milk carton, Baldwin responded.
  • Baldwin apparently was on set and ready to start when an ocular migraine hit.
  • According to her tweet, she gets them about once a year, but never had one happen on set in the 20 years she’s been in broadcasting.
  • CNN had Brianna Keilar, who anchors the anchor just before Baldwin under the title “CNN Right Now,” continue anchoring, which Baldwin thanked her for on Twitter.
  • Baldwin returned to CNN on Friday, Dec. 11.
