Reporting Scotland just captioned another 2 people as headlines in the late bulletin. How is that even possible?

Enter the wrong style code in your script? Have a headline macro or similar in your playout automation that hasn't reset at the end of a headline sequence?

What makes you think it's so impossible? With heavy automation (could well be just one person running the late bulletin) and captions that animate in and out with no preview - it's entirely possible.

There was much said on how he joined Twitter in 2012 and had not sent a single tweet, that was changed today.
