Wrong number causes CNN morning show to wake wrong man

CNN's Early Start was supposed to do its “Wake ‘Em Up” segment with comedian Chuck Nice this morning. They rang him up a little after 4:30 a.m. his time. Except it wasn't Nice on the line. Poor guy, whoever he was, got a very early and unexpected wake-up call. And the anchors were pretty embarrassed.

Just take this as a reminder to check those phone numbers and, in the case of TV, dial carefully. Video from Mediaite via Erik Wemple:
