Mare Is A Single Syllable

Mare is a singel syllable for most of us.  But, for the morning news commentator, it is two syllables as in mayor.  So, when the news commentator commented that a mayor in Mecosta county had come down with a rare equine disease, I was quite concerned.  But, after a while, I realized that she meant to say “mare” and not mayor.

I wonder if she is from the south?
