WZZM Reporter Misses Final Play, Says Michigan Beat Michigan State in Live Shot [VIDEO]

Subscribe to 97.9 WGRD on

As you probably know, Michigan State defeated Michigan 27-23 in Ann Arbor on one of the craziest plays you’ll ever see. Unfortunately, WZZM reporter Jamal Spencer was one of the few that didn’t see it.

As you can see in the video above, and originally reported by Deadspin, Spencer did an entire segment on the game, live from the Big House, and had no idea that Michigan State was able to take Michigan’s botched punt in for the game-winning touchdown.

Instead of running away from his mistake, though, Spencer called himself out on Twitter:

It’s probably fair to assume that Spencer will wait until the very last play of the game before leaving the stadium from this point forward.

WZZM’s News Director Taz Painter made a statement on their website Sunday morning stating,

At the end of Saturday’s Michigan State victory over the University of Michigan – we screwed up. Due to a breakdown in communication, we reported that the Wolverines won.

When we make a mistake – our guideline is to correct it as quickly as possible and we did. Immediately.

Even though most TVs in Michigan were tuned to ESPN when we made the mistake – many thousands of people have seen at least portions of it on the internet and social media.

For the error – I want to say that we’re sorry. I’m sorry.

We have and will continue to discuss what we can learn to make sure we don’t do it again.
