SARASOTA, Fla. - An on-air mistake with the graphics on a recent ABC 7 News show was featured on a late night talk show Tuesday.

Jimmy Kimmel Live featured the clip as part of their "Excellence in Reporting" segment.

The blooper happened Monday night when a graphic was assigned to the wrong side of the screen, causing it to appear right over the face of anchor Hayley Wielgus.  Unfortunately, the graphic featured a pig snout perfectly centered on where her face was.


After the blooper happened, Hayley was humble enough to share the image on her Twitter page.
