KIM CURLING FOLLOW-UP
STUDIO TECHNICIAN WEIGHS IN
The extension cord into which Susan occasionally plugs her curling iron on set was not, as previously reported, placed there for that purpose.
It turns out the extension cord has a perfectly legitimate purpose.
This is the official statement of Studio Technician Rodney Paulson:
"The cord stashed at the back of the news set is not actually for Susan’s curling enjoyment. Its original intent is to power one of the rolling lights we use in the evening newscasts, Special Assignment intros etc.. Of course, Susan is always welcome to the power cord. We want her looking her absolute best and anything we can do to make that happen is no problem whatsoever. All the power to you babe!! "
Paulson is largely regarded as one of our finest studio dudes, recently being named employee of the month.
If Rod says it's cool, it's cool.
