they lost the signal to Hala. That was a backup. Still makes me think whether they just always have someone in studio for things like that.
Extended edition of TWRN tonight for additional coverage of the London Terror Attack.
EDIT: I got up for 10 minutes and now Lynda Kinkade is anchoring, presumably from CNN Center?
That makes sense. I wondered if that was the case, but I also thought "well, maybe it could have been an instance where they had someone in the studio to handle the day's other news."
