Sunrise weatherman Sam Mac calls out a shocking newspaper ‘bags’ gaffe

Sunrise weatherman Sam Mac calls out a shocking newspaper gaffe as he’s accused of being on ‘bags’: ‘Sorry, what?!’

Sunrise weatherman Sam Mac has called out an unfortunate newspaper headline that falsely suggested he was a drug user.

Wednesday’s edition of The Daily Telegraph featured a story about the Channel Seven personality, who recently became a first-time father, alongside the headline: ‘Sam’s latest forecast is less sleep, more bags.’

The 40-year-old was surprised by the headline, which presumably went through several editorial checks before being sent to the printers, sharing a photo of the article on Instagram alongside the caption: ‘Sorry, what?’

‘Bags’ is a slang term for a packet of drugs, usually a standard amount for sale, and is most commonly used in reference to cocaine.

However, the ‘bags’ being referenced in the article were in fact carry-on luggage, which he now needs more of when travelling because of his growing family.

Sam’s followers were amused by the gaffe.

‘Wow this is very funny,’ wrote former Neighbours star Bonnie Anderson, while podcast host Laura Byrne added: ‘Sounds expensive.’

Grant Denyer, a former Sunrise weatherman, said he was ‘happily handing the rumour mill to you,’ in reference to the substance abuse rumours that have followed him for years.

It comes after Sam sat down for an interview for Stellar magazine with his daughter Margot, now 12 weeks, and girlfriend Rebecca James.

‘I used to go away for three nights with one little carry bag. But now it’s a full operation,’ he laughed.

‘Travelling with Margot requires you to travel with more stuff than the TV crew – and that includes a satellite, the lighting and cameras.’
