DALLAS — WFAA extended its Wednesday 10 p.m. newscast for important coverage of the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.
"Jimmy Kimmel Live!" aired immediately following our newscast. Unfortunately, the automated system that triggers commercials aired the first commercial break in error, interrupting Jimmy Kimmel’s monologue. The same technical error also impacted two commercial breaks later in the program, not just the one interrupting the monologue.
WFAA apologizes for this error.
Later Thursday morning, around 10 a.m., Kimmel responded to WFAA on Twitter, thanking WFAA for the apology and reposting of his monologue. Kimmel said he believed the mistake was made unintentionally.
Here is the link to Jimmy Kimmel’s powerful, full monologue on the Uvalde shooting and his thoughts on gun control.
