CNN 'Early Start' Hosts Dial Wrong Number, Wake Up Stranger (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

CNN's Ashleigh Banfield and Zoraida Sambolin accidentally woke up a random stranger early Monday morning.

The "Early Start" co-hosts were trying to call comedian Chuck Nice for a phone interview at 6:40 a.m. They got a groggy man on the line instead.

Banfield, who thought she was speaking to Nice, joked, "Chuck, this is the FBI calling." Sambolin realized they had called the wrong person after the man asked, "¿Perdón?" Banfield gasped in horror and proceeded to crack up. Then she got up, telling Sambolin, "You're taking this one."

Sambolin told the cameras, "¡Disculpe!"
