Vegas Anchor Breaks Down in Tears on the Set


It wasn't a good day for KLAS Anchor Paula Francis.

On Tuesday's 6PM newscast, Francis broke into tears five minutes into broadcast and couldn’t continue after “something upsetting happened,” she said.

“Sometimes women have tears,” she told Las Vegas Review Journal. 

“I was having a bad day that started with two hours at the dentist,” she said.

Word in the newsroom was that she had read some hate mail just before going on the air.

After breaking down, her co-anchor Dave Courvoisier had to handle the rest of the newscast.

It seems that this was a first for Francis, a mainstay at the CBS affiliate since 1988.

No word on what was said in the email that got her so upset.
