Samantha Armytage has had a crazy day after her phone number was screened live on air.
The incident occured this morning when During a segment featuring Samsung’s new smartwatch, the number was quickly flashed on screen. In a matter of seconds, Sam’s phone was inundated with calls and texts from viewers who had managed to catch her digits. At last count she had over 1500 messages and 15 marriage proposals. “It was very flattering that at such an early hour so many viewers called or texted to give me their thoughts on the show and ask me to move to Cairns to marry them.”Sam said
Sunrise Executive Producer, Michael Pell, said Sam’s number was quickly changed. “That’s the beauty of live TV, you never know what’s going to happen. The new technology caught us off guard and Sam’s number was changed immediately. On the plus side, it demonstrates how interactive our audience is – they feel so comfortable with our hosts that they’ll call them right up on air.”.
Here’s hoping that next time this happens i am awake…
