3AW Traffic reporter Andrea MacNamara provided Ross and John listeners with a light-hearted chuckle this morning when she became a bit tongue-tied while reading the traffic report at 6:30AM.

"Two left-hand lanes closed Jackson's road outbound there....blah,blah,blah,blah...that's all folks." Andrea said before composing herself and finishing the report.

"At least she didn't drop the f-bomb," Ross Stevenson quipped.

  • As good as she is, the pressure to put out this type of voice over in too short a time limit takes a toll on Andrea's diction. Usually half a dozen words get swallowed every time I here her traffic report.

  • Nice to have a sense of humour.....and guess what... Labor voters must all be on 774 because nobody phoned to complain.

  • Imagine what would have happenend if this had been a Liberal Member in parliament??? Gillard would have been all over it.

  • Are these traffic reports prerecorded or live? I got the feeling (when I heard it on the radio) she was doing a taping and they played the dud track rather than just take 2
