On Saturday a WLS-TV anchor spoke about the Olympics with an incorrect Olympic ring logo that said "P.F. Chang 2018." On social media, many questioned how the news station could mix up the name of the South Korea host city Pyeongchang with the Asian restaurant chain P.F. Chang. 

Jayme Nicholas, a spokesperson for the network said the graphic was created for a “satirical” segment and was accidentally swapped with another logo during Saturday's segment, the Chicago Tribune reported. Nicholas apologized for the mistake, the Tribune reported.
