Written by Michael Lambarde on Feb. 16, 2011

Serene Branson, who was part of the CBS team at Sunday’s Grammy Awards, did not suffer a stroke on air, according to the CBS network. Branson was shown on air garbling her words, which made viewers watching the broadcast think she was having a serious situation live on air (click here to view the video).

CBS has released a statement that assured that Serene did not suffer a stroke on air. The release also said Serene is feeling fine after the incident. Her vital signs were checked and everything seemed fine. The network though opted for a colleague to drive her home as a precaution.

The statement said that, “Serene Branson 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 she says that she is feeling fine this morning.”

The video of the incident has gone viral on the Internet. Following the release of the video on the Internet, a Twitter page called Serene Branson has popped up. The page dismisses the claim that she suffered a stroke explaining that “it was just nerves.” It is not clear if the Twitter page is the official page of the reporter.
