KEYC: ‘No Futher Comment’ On Stensrud’s Arrest

Hours after news of Annie Stensrud‘s DUI arrest broke, Mankato CBS-affiliate KEYC released a statement addressing the incident on their website:

Stensrud, you may recall, made national headlines when video of her slurring during a newscast went viral. She told station management that she was taking some medications at that time that caused the intoxicated–like appearance and behaviors.

KEYC General Manager Denny Wahlstrom says that because it is a personnel matter, procedures need to be followed according to station policy, and that no further comment will be made at this time.

Two Weeks After Slurring Words During KEYC Newscast, Annie Stensrud Arrested For DUI

KEYC anchor Annie Stensrud, who appeared earlier this month to be slurring her words on a Sunday night newscast, was arrested yesterday for DUI, the Mankato Free Press is reporting.

Stensrud has not appeared on the Mankato CBS-affiliate since December 4. Video of the newscast, which Stensrud was unable to finish, went viral and led to much speculation that the anchor was drunk.

Stensrud issued a statement apologizing for her “terrible” performance, saying, “I’ve been sick for some time and taking medication, and have missed a lot of work lately.” In an interview with WCCO radio, KEYC general manager Dennis Walhstrom said the anchor was “sick,” not drunk.

Stensrud was arrested Wednesday morning after an anonymous resident called the North Mankato Police Department to report “an intoxicated person was leaving a Roe Crest Drive residence in a vehicle,” the Free Press reports. After a bulletin describing the car was put out to law enforcement, Stensrud was stopped on Highway 14. Read more

KEYC Anchor Annie Stensrud Speaks Out About ‘Uncharacteristic Newscast’

After video of her “uncharacteristic” Sunday-night newscast went viral earlier this week, KEYC anchor Annie Stensrud is speaking out to refute rumors that she was drunk when she headed for the anchor desk at the Mankato CBS-affiliate:

My performance last Sunday night was terrible, and for that, I apologize. I’ve been sick for some time and taking medication, and have missed a lot of work lately. I’m on my way to feeling better and hope to be back at full strength soon. I appreciate everyone’s understanding and even more so, their support.

Stensrud’s viral newscast was also the subject of David Letterman‘s “Late Show” Top 10 list last night: “Top 10 signs your local news team is drunk” (video inside). Read more
