CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin disappears mid-show, later explains it was an ocular migraine

CNN Newsroom anchor Brooke Baldwin hosted roughly thirty minutes of her two hour broadcast from New York on Thursday afternoon before disappearing, People magazine noted. After returning from a commercial break, her 1pm colleague Brianna Keilar was in the anchor chair, hosting the remainder of her show.

Later, after fans reached out to question her absence, Baldwin explained she had an ocular migraine that took her off air, kicking the show to Washington, DC, where Keilar took over with just minutes’ notice.

People magazine noted that migraine “subtypes that are characterized by a variety of visual disturbances including visual loss, blind spots, zig-zag lines, or seeing stars.”

Baldwin explained that in her TV anchoring experience, this was the first instance where she got it while on air.
