Life as a TV news reporter isn’t as glamorous as people think. The long-suffering broadcast journalists who bring us the headlines have to contend with bad weather, irritable animals, and members of the public misbehaving in the background. Here are some moments that are so bad they’re good.
First Coast News reporter David Williams was making a live report when he was photobombed by a woman in a unicorn mask and a pink tutu. “I saw a pink blur in the corner of my eye,” he later told nydailynews.com. “I turned around and thought, ‘Oh, this isn’t good.’” It was not.
TV reporters and bad weather really don’t mix. Fox 29 journalist Steve Keeley was reporting from Salem County, New Jersey when he was knocked over by a wave of snow from a plow, causing someone in the studio to actually scream.
