Grammy Reporter Suffered From A "Complex Migrane," Not A Stroke

Filed under: TV NewsGrammys

Phew! Thank goodness. We were sincerely worried for her.

Earlier this week, this video (above) went viral and national concern started to swell for the CBS 2 TV reporter, Serene Branson, whose slurred words were thought to be the result of a stroke on air. However, the chief of neurosurgery at UCLA Medical Center has come forward to reveal that Serene actually suffered from a "complex migraine" and should be fine from here on out.

Dr. Neil Martin explained to sources that this kind of severe headache can mimic certain systems of a stroke, like slurred speech, weakness and loss of vision. However, thankfully unlike with strokes, the effects of complex migraines are not long term.

We hear Serene is still taking it easy, but has informed her station that she will return to work soon after taking some much needed time off.

Good idea. Rest, bb! No doubt your job will be waiting for you when you're ready to get back to it. For now, take some time for yourself. It's been a loooooong week for you.

We're sending you loads of good vibes! Feel better soon!

CBS Updates Grammy Reporter's Condition; She HAS Been To A Doctor

Filed under: TV NewsSad SadGrammys

Poor thing! The last 48 hours must have been really awful for her.

Yesterday, CBS2 reporter Serene Branson dropped onto everyone's radar when her telecast from the Grammys went viral.(above) She seemed to have been experiencing some issues with her speech and many were concerned that she had suffered a stroke on air.

CBS released a statement, insisting that Serene was alright and that she was looked over by EMTs at the scene who deemed her to be healthy. However, in a new statement issued by the network, we've learned that she was taken to a doctor yesterday for further medical testing. The statement reads:

As many of you know CBS2 reporter Serene Branson experienced some health-related problems last night during our post-Grammys newscast.

She was examined by paramedics on scene immediately after her broadcast. Her vital signs were normal. She was not hospitalized.

As a precautionary measure, a colleague gave her a ride home. And while Serene says she is feeling better today, she wants us to know she followed-up with a visit to the doctor for some medical tests.

Serene thanks everyone for their concern and good wishes and hopes to be back on the air very soon.

So sad! We really hope she isn't suffering from anything too serious.

We're sending you some good vibes, bb!

Concern For Grammy Reporter After Getting Tongue Tied!

Filed under: TV NewsGrammys

Oh no!

Check out this coverage of last night's Grammy awards. (above)

We think the reporter just couldn't put into words how amazing last night was - or she just saw Barbara Streisand! (That would've left us tongue-tied too!)

Update: There is some confusion, speculation and even reports that the reporter may have suffered a stroke on air and rushed to the hospital afterwards. We hope she's okay! And we will keep monitoring the situation for an update.
