“Jo has succumbed to a very sore throat,” said Southern Cross Weatherman Peter Murphy after Tassie news presenter Jo Palmer unfortunately had a coughing fit this week -whilst introducing a story about the flu.
But Murphy stepped in to save the day, just as Livinia Nixon once did for Nine’s Peter Hitchener.
Murphy told LA FM‘s Leigh-Roy the gig was temporary only.
“(Jo) is alright. You won’t be seeing me back in that chair very soon, but it was very hard to concentrate last night Leigh-Roy, because the only thing you were thinking about was Jo’s well-being,” he said.
For poor Jo Palmer it wasn’t the first time a tickle in the throat has struck on air.
