Somebody at the station forgot to download the latest software in to their station's master clock. With all the switching of dates for the "Fall Back", the better clocks need a software upgrade.
Some of the older systems have to be programmed manually, the day before.

The NBC Evertz Namedropper just uses linear time code from the station's clock system, to put the time and date on the screen.

PSA: Your TV's clock may or may not need to be adjusted for Daylight Savings as well. My HDTV and my Converter Box both needed to be manually adjusted.
