Cockroach Butts in Robert Kovacik’s Live Shot

If you’re squeamish, this next post isn’t for you.

NBC4′s Robert Kovacik was reporting from West L.A. Thursday night when a cockroach decided to steal his thunder and crawl all over the reporter during his live shot.

Kovacik tweeted the following after he was done with his live report: “Thanks viewers for noticing the “guest” in our live shot! Any names for my new pet?”

Gro-ss.
