C-SPAN Host Falls, Breaks Nose

11296D.C. papparazzi Mark Wilkins alerted us on Twitter that C-SPAN Executive Producer Peter Slen fell in C-SPAN’s garage Tuesday night. He required an alleged 70 stitches and broke his nose.

C-SPAN Communications Director Howard Mortman confirmed the incident to FishbowlDC.

“Thanks for checking in on Peter,” Mortman wrote by email. “He did have a fall earlier this week and is sporting some new stitches, but he’s already back at his desk today and on the mend.  Thanks for your concern.”

When pressed as to what happened, he added, “Leaving work, Peter fell in the C-SPAN parking garage.  Yes, his nose is broken (no pain), but it only adds to his charm.”
