Oops. Weatherman saves the day coughing strikes news presenter.

BeginĀ 1.30 mins

“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 toldĀ 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.
