After a brief discussion with two of her co-anchors, Chris Burrous, and Lynette Romero, she was interrupted and asked to cover herself up. She was completely confused and asked, "What's going on? You want me to put this on? Why? Cause it's cold?", when someone off the camera replied, "We're getting a lot of emails".

"I look like a librarian", She commented.

As Chan got into the grey sweater, "I look like a librarian now.", Chan exclaimed. Burrous then continued with,"Everyone's got an opinion about your dress this morning," to which Chan explained how the other dress didn't work, so she had to go with the backup dress.

Later, Chan posted the clip on her Facebook page, asking people if the dress was too revealing.

Chan tied the sweater in a really presentable manner and continued with her report with full on confidence. Later she also apologized and said, "I'm sorry if I was inappropriate, Tomorrow I better knock it out of the park, I better make everybody happy, I need to go shopping. This is a lot of pressure."

The way she handled the whole situation is really remarkable. But if the matter was solved off-air a lot of humiliation could have been avoided.
