Several hours A little over an hour later Geist came back on the station to apologize for the apparent prank call, and got an irate phone call was corrected by the actual Ryan Miller.

(Ed note: While Miller explained that “although he appreciates a good prank, everyone up here in Canada is taking things very personally.” The choice of words describing Miller as “irate” refers not to his feelings towards MSNBC, but to the prankster.)
