Oklahoma news anchor suffers ‘beginnings of a stroke’ live on air

Julie Chin, who works for NBC affiliate KJRH in Tulsa, was speaking about NASA’s canceled Artemis-I launch on Saturday morning. However, as she delivered the news, she was unable to read the words from her teleprompter.

Chin looked puzzled as she tried to get on with the story. But moments later, he was completely unable to speak the script right in front of her.

Chin then went off script and said, “I’m sorry, something is happening to me this morning and I apologize to everyone.”

In addition, he threw the transmission to the weather team and continued: ‘Let’s go ahead and send it to Meteorologist Annie Brown.’

However, Brown took over the broadcast and responded with a smile: ‘Julie, we love you so much, we love you so much. We all have those days.’

Instead of going back on the airwaves anyway, Chin’s colleagues called 9-11. Shortly after, she was rushed to a nearby hospital.

Julie Chin went to her Facebook profile on Sunday, September 4, to update her health status after the scare. She mentioned that she was in good health.

He then said: ‘I am happy to share that all my tests have been excellent. At this point, the doctors believe I had the beginning of a stroke, but not a full stroke.”

Furthermore, he continued, “There are still a lot of questions and a lot to do, but the bottom line is that it should be fine.”

She added: ‘The episode seemed to have come out of nowhere. I felt great before our show.’

He further stated, “However, over the course of several minutes during our newscast, things began to happen. First, I lost partial vision in one eye. A little later my hand and arm went numb.’

Chin recalled: ‘I knew I was in big trouble when my mouth wouldn’t speak the words that were right in front of me on the teleprompter. If you were watching Saturday morning, you know how desperately I tried to move the show forward, but the words just wouldn’t come out.
