Oops: WABC Accidentally Airs Parts of WNBC Newscast

During his weather forecast at the top of the 4 a.m. newscast Monday morning, WABC meteorologist Bill Evans did a double take at what was airing in one of the screens behind him (above left).

That’s because, if you look closely, the programming is the early-morning newscast on rival WNBC, anchored by Darlene Rodriguez and Michael Gargiulo. And it didn’t end there: before switching to a map, WABC showed WNBC’s programming full, taking a live shot of WNBC meteorologist Chris Cimino during his weather forecast (above right, with Evans’ lower-third banner still up).

To Evans’ credit, he never veered from his forecast, though someone can be heard gasping audibly when Cimino’s live shot is shown.
