VIDEO: NY News Anchor Admits She Boozed It Up Before Newscasts

Sue Simmons, a prominent news anchor at the local station WNBC-TV in New York, said she used to go on the air after having a few drinks.

Simmons told LX New York that years ago, she would go clubbing in between shows, then return to the studio to do her evening broadcasts.

“That stopped in the mid ’80s, late ’80s,” Simmons said. “Because I looked in the mirror before — when I was about ready to go on the air
— and my eyes were red.”

Simmons made headlines last year after she inadvertently cursed during a live broadcast.
