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.
