Chicago News Station Makes Embarrassing Mistake With Olympics Graphic

A local Chicago news station made an embarrassing mistake during a recent broadcast that suggested that they don't understand the difference between a city in South Korea and a popular Asian restaurant in the United States.

WLS-Ch.7’s news team aired a graphic over the weekend that said, "P.F. Chang 2018," obviously confusing P.F. Changs with PyeongChang.

P.F. Chang's responded hilariously to the embarrassing graphic, tweeting: "Contrary to this broadcast, we’re not hosting the games."

According to the Chicago Tribune, Jayme Nicholas, a spokesperson for the ABC affiliate in Chicago said that the graphic was intended for a "satirical piece" that was put together the day before "by sports anchor Mark Giangreco in which viewers were encouraged to invent their own Olympic sports, but it was mistakenly also used for the serious news story read on Saturday by weekend anchor Mark Rivera."​
