Heather Kovar, a TV news anchor for CBS 6 in Albany, New York, sparked a lot of concerns over the weekend after she was seen slurring her speech, calling the meteorologist by the wrong name and acting erratically. Even though she had a rough go on the Saturday broadcast, she assured viewers via Twitter that she would be returning on Sunday morning: “It’s another marathon weekend! See you now 6-8am. Then 6 and 11. And I’ll be back Sunday morning from 7-9am then 6:30 pm and 11pm…”
… However, she did not reappear Sunday morning and the station has suspended her, according to the New York Post.
… According to the Albany newspaper Kovar had recently returned to the station from leave, where she was taking care of her father before his passing, and many wonder if she has had a difficult time dealing with such a heartbreaking situation.
