Nine News suffers an embarrassing blunder when the network switches to a SEVEN reporter during a live cross to Daniel Andrews’ press conference
Channel Nine suffered an embarrassing blunder at the press conference of Victorian Prime Minister Daniel Andrews on Tuesday.
While Andrews discussed the state’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, Seven News reporter Tegan Dolling was briefly shown on the screen.
The Seven reporter was preparing for a live cross from Albury-Wodonga, but viewers were confused when she appeared on Channel Nine.

According to TV tonight, the scene changed after a few seconds and went back to an interpreter who signed the prime minister’s speech.
This is not the first time that large networks have experienced a technical failure recently.
In May, Matt Seven, host of Channel Seven’s Weekend Sunrise, had a tricky encounter on live television.

The 36-year-old turned red when the breakfast program ran into technical difficulties and was unable to switch to the next segment.
After Matt threw at reporter Sarah Greenhalgh in Italy, the screen suddenly switched to Sportsbet’s Inside Trading, hosted by Simon Marshall.
Simon was shown reading his scripts casually dropping the F word.

While the footage continued to play, Sportsbet analysts Julian Vallance and Ben Clifton were also heard during a conversation.
The segment then switched back to Sarah who reported on coronavirus cases in Italy.
Back in the newsroom, Matt brushed off the technical blunder and said, “Sarah Greenhalgh reports there and now let’s get some more news with Sally.”
