Grammy Awards Reporter Thought To Have A Stroke Had A “Migrane Aura”

Written by Michael Lambarde on Feb. 19, 2011

Last Sunday night, Serene Branson — a reporter who was covering events for the Grammy Awards — started to stumble her words on-air during a newscast, which ended up with hundreds of viral videos of the reporter being posted all over the Internet (click here to view the video). Initially, people thought that the reporter had suffered from a stroke. However, this appears to not be the case now.

A doctor noted that Branson was simply suffering from a “migrane aura,” which has symptoms similar to a stroke. He added, “It’s as if there’s a wave that’s shutting down functions through the brain over a period of minutes.” After the incident, Branson noted that she was “scared, nervous, confused, exhausted, and in an evening dress in the back of an ambulance,” about the live incident. Adding, “I said, ‘I just want to go home. I just want to go home.’”‘
