CBS Says Reporter Fine After On-air Incoherence

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The CBS-TV station in Los Angeles says a reporter who spoke incoherently during a segment on the Grammy Awards is feeling fine.

Serene Branson was checked by paramedics immediately after her Grammys report Sunday from outside the downtown Los Angeles arena where the awards where held, according to the station's website.

The young woman's vital signs were normal and she wasn't hospitalized, CBS said. A colleague took her home as a precaution and she said she was "feeling fine" Monday morning, according to the channel.

In her brief on-camera appearance Sunday night, Branson struggled to find words and sounded nonsensical.

According to the CBS website, Branson is a Los Angeles native who has worked as an Emmy-nominated reporter in Santa Barbara, Palm Springs and Sacramento and covered stories including politics, natural disasters and a convicted murderer's execution.
