CHICAGO – The WGN Morning News team in Chicago accidentally hung up on Oprah Winfrey during a phone interview discussing her network.
Oprah was the first guest on the launch of the network's expanded morning newscast.
During the interview, Oprah was speaking then accidentally transferred to another line.
The screw-up prompted an outburst from anchor Robin Baumgarten.
"We are such a pack of morons,” Baumgarten said.
Moments later, Oprah was back on the line and insisted the hang-up wasn’t her fault.
