Anyone track this down in the archives, if it's on a covered sector?

“For a little more than three minutes, the controller’s microphone was inadvertently activated, transmitting the soundtrack of the movie over the radio frequency for that airspace,” the statement said. It gave no details on the type of movie being watched.

The problem was brought to air traffic control’s attention by the pilot of a military aircraft who was using an alternate frequency. “The controller and the front line manager have been suspended from operational duties pending an investigation,” the statement added.

That supe should get a promotion, not a suspension. They apparently understand the difference between what the rules say and what's necessary to keep a controller awake and alert.

Anyone know the approximate time? "Early morning hours" is quite vague
