And suddenly, she became the news herself:
Many people thought it was a stroke, and Ms. Branson quickly left the air and sought medical attention. But by the end of the week, doctors were able to announce that she had suffered the effects of a "complex migraine".
From CBS News:
Migraines can cause more than pain. Just ask TV reporter Serene Branson, the TV reporter whose recent on-air speaking difficulty is now believed to have been caused by a so-called "complex" migraine.
What's a complex migraine? It's an unusual "presentation" of the neurological disorder - one that can cause vision disturbances, vertigo, and numbness as well as the sort of speech difficulty that Branson experienced.
Ms. Branson appeared on the 'CBS Early Show' with the network's doctor to talk about the situation and hopefully with proper medical care she's now going to be okay......
