KTLA meteorologist who was asked to cover up her dress while live on air after viewers' comments that it was too revealing, said the station didn't force her to put on the cardigan and that it was all part of a joke, Today.com reported.

Chan said Sunday in a blog post she "was simply playing along with my co-anchor's joke, and if you've ever watched the morning show, you know we poke fun at each other all the time."
