Over the years, we have heard a lot of stories as to what goes on in the audio booth at a TV station. We could tell you some of our own, but this website is rated PG.
But, we have never heard of an Anchor getting injured and missing time on the air because of an audio booth mishap.
But, that is exactly what happened to KTRK Anchor Dave Ward.
Ward says he was recording an audio spot to promote the 6pm news when he fell.
The culprit, the longtime anchorman tells Mike McGuff, was a pair of headphones that had fallen off the desk. He hadn't noticed the headphone's wire had wrapped around his legs which caused him to lose balance.
The next thing, Ward was on the way to the hospital where doctors say he had hairline type fracture on his pelvic bone.
Doctors say the injury could take three to four weeks to heal, but Ward told me once he gets the pain under control, he would like to be back at the news desk before that.
