In February 2011 Serene Branson suffered a neurological episode on air while reporting for the Grammys. Her slurred, incoherent speech went viral, as bewildered viewers suspected she was having a stroke. It was actually a case of transient aphasia, one of the stranger symptoms of migraine that can mimic a stroke. Serene has utilised her exposure from this episode to raise awareness of migraine. She currently reports for KCBS 2 and KCAL 9 News in Los Angeles.
