A TV host has been suspended after she slurred her way through a report and went off-script multiple times.

Heather Kovar, an anchor with CBS6 Albany, appeared out-of-it, to which she blames lack of sleep and exhaustion following leave for bereavement.

In one segment, Kovar gives an incoherent speech about a heatwave in Texas, before saying "this weekend, right here, is so amazing” - leaving viewers wondering if she was drunk.

She won't be returning to the station until an internal investigation is carried out.
