News Anchor Tells Kids Santa Is ‘Made Up’
Well, Virginia, a good thing you never met WTVD in Raleigh’s anchor Anna Laurel.
While tossing to meteorologist Chris Hohmann after a story about a school denying a black student the opportunity to be Santa, anchor Anna Laurel told viewers, “Hide your ears, but the Santa of today is made up.”
The station responded to comments on its facebook page by writing, “We obviously struck a raw nerve during our Santa story at 4 pm. We will be more mindful of our 4 pm audience in the future.”
