NBC Chicago anchors were left standing in front of a black video wall after a technical glitch.
At the tail end of WMAQ’s 4 p.m. newscast Feb. 1, 2022, co-anchors Marion Brooks and Stefan Holt moved over to the station’s standalone video wall so that 5 p.m. anchors Allison Rosati and Rob Stafford could get into position at the main anchor desk.
The pair was reading a story about the upcoming Super Bowl LVI with related B-roll running fullscreen when the picture suddenly dropped out.
“It’s going to be quite the show,” Holt said, somewhat ironically given that the screen had gone to black.
The control room then cut back to the pair at standing at the video wall, where there was presumably supposed to be some kind of graphic or video behind them.
“Someone forgot to pay the power bill,” joked Holt, indicating to the blank LED panels behind him.
“There will be something here later,” said Brooks, indicating to the empty spot between her and Holt. Holt then jokingly said Stafford “forgot to pay the bill.”
