If the umpire declares the batter, batter-runner, or a runner
out for interference, all other runners shall return to the last
base that was in the judgment of the umpire, legally touched at
the time of the interference, unless otherwise provided by these
rules. (Definition of Terms (Interference))
In the event the batter-runner has not reached first base,
all runners shall return to the base last occupied at the time of
the pitch; provided, however, if during an intervening play at the
plate with less than two outs a runner scores, and then the batterrunner
is called out for interference outside the three-foot lane,
the runner is safe and the run shall count. (Definition of Terms

Unlike balks, where the outcome is automatic (either every runner, including the batter-runner, advances safely at least one base as permitted by rule, or the balk penalty is enforced (the pitch, if any, does not count, and all runners advance one base), there is an option for the manager to either enforce the catcher's interference penalty (the batter is awarded 1st base, runners advance 1 base if forced, and any runners who are stealing are awarded the base that they were trying to steal) or accept the result of the play. There is a special case with a runner trying to score from 3rd that is both catcher's interference and a balk (catcher [or another fielder] steps in front of home plate without the ball, or touches the batter, including his bat), and is enforced as both (the ball is dead immediately, the runner from 3rd is awarded home plate,the batter is awarded 1st base, and all other runners advance as if it was a balk).
The announcer probably was clueless but he also might have seen Layne kill it almost right away with a live ball.
