Oops: Local News Station Runs ‘P.F. Chang’ Olympics Graphic Instead of ‘Pyeongchang’

If you were were watching ABC 7 in the Chicago area this past Saturday morning, you may have noticed something, um, slightly off:


Yes, the station accidentally ran a mock “P.F. Chang” graphic instead of “Pyeongchang” for a brief moment.

Per the Chicago Tribune, a spokesperson for the network apologized:

Jayme Nicholas, a spokesperson for the ABC affiliate in Chicago, told Inc. that the goof was the result of a mix-up. The graphic was created for a different “satirical piece” put together on Friday 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, Nicholas said.
