My recording didn’t work but it looks like Jo Palmer had a coughing fit or similar on tonight’s Tasmanian bulletin with Peter Murphy taking over the bulletin and reading the rest of the news as well as doing his usual weather. He also included regular updates about Jo and that she’d be returning to do the updates later.
Wonder if EyewitnessTV managed to get it or someone else.[/quote]

I’ve managed to record it, she had a coughing fit very briefly caught at the end of a story introduction about two reports in, presented the next introduction with a very croaky voice then Peter Murphy appearing on screen following that report mentioning Jo had been sent off with a ‘very sore throat.’
Ironically the coughing fit happened during a flu report.[/quote]Jo has quite a record of having coughing fits live on air over the past couple years (she had one earlier this year too). She should really think about taking some time off whenever she catches the flu to avoid these ‘incidents’ happening.
Here’s a video I have of a coughing fit she had in July last year.

Still a better backdrop than Seven News.[/quote]If it ain’t broke is Southern Cross’ thinking.
