Outpouring of Support for KRDO’s Rachael Plath After Video of Her Swearing On the Air Goes Viral

KRDO meteorologist Rachael Plath has seen an outpouring of  viewer support this week after video of her exclaiming “son of a bitch!” in the middle of a forecast (video above) aired live on the Colorado Springs ABC-affiliate.

“Thanks for being human and don’t sweat it,” one fan wrote on her Facebook wall. “You are great in my book.”

“I think it’s great to know you’re human. Thanks for being real,” another comment read.

Plath — who noted that the viral moment was the result of a wrong clip airing and “not a moment of frustration live” — gamely thanked viewers for their support, responding individually to many of the messages.

“Thanks for your constant support and viewership,” Plath wrote. “I appreciate it all, especially now.”
