Last Sunday at 4PM, the Australian radio station 3AW missed the “on-the-dot” news bulletin because the news reader was too busy on the computer.
The news theme was broadcast but a series of advertisements followed it. According to NEWS.com.au, the producer ran to the studio to see that the news reader was on the computer.
By the time the news reader annouced the news, her time was up.
The news reader said that she was having computer problems but 3AW’s IT Team found she was on Facebook at the time.
A memo was sent out to all 3AW’s members saying not to use Facebook unless its for research.[Source: NEWS.com.au]
