It was scary for her and scary for viewers watching WBRZ’s (Baton Rouge) weekend newscast.

Weekend Anchor Brandi B Harris left the newscast abruptly on Sunday after falling ill.

Viewers were worried after seeing Harris struggle through some stories and the production crew making a decision to suddenly end a part of the newscast until other WBRZ reporters could get into the studio to take over.

“I felt ill,” Brandi said on Monday “I’m fine and it’s nothing concerning,” she said.

“Brandi is an excellent part of our team and while we were worried about her health when she became suddenly ill Sunday, it’s comforting to know she’ll be okay and that our viewers were moved to check on her,” Rocky Daboval, WBRZ General Manager, said.
