From Huh? to Hilarious: A Roundup of How Morning Teams Celebrated Halloween

Countless anchors across the country got into the spirit of Halloween by dressing up in kooky costumes and camping it up. The winners in the broadcasting version of the Halloween Parade continues to be the viewers who witnessed everything from awkward concepts to small moments that were genuinely funny.

The unofficial TVSpy award for the cattiest and most likely to be viewed by the Human Resources department went to Oklahoma City CBS affiliate KWTV. (video above) Anchor Bobbie Miller dressed like Tammy Payne, while Payne dressed like Miller in what came off as a thinly veiled excuse for them to take potshots at each other.

While the two were busy insulting one another, co-anchor Stan Miller scored the sexist remark of the day when he said “I want you to met Bobbie Miller.” He then patted “Miller’s” baby bump and said “Bucking for another 12 weeks off!”

Fake Bobbie Miller summed up the segment after taking a few shots across her bow by telling fake Tammy Payne, “We’re not going to be friends when this show’s over, are we?” Read more

Wilmington, NC, ABC affiliate WWAY celebrated “International Talk Like a Pirate Day” this morning.

Anchors Ashley Jacobs, Randy Aldridge and meteorologist Tim Buckley slapped on eye patches and attempted speaking like pirates speak. “Are these one of those things we’re going to regret immediately after we’ve done it?” asked Jacobs.

Buckley provided the clunker of the morning when he asked, “Where do pirates get their taxes done?” His answer? “H & Rrrrrrr Block.” TVspy could almost hear the rimshot from our offices on Parrrrrrk Avenue in NYC.

Happy National Weatherperson’s Day!

Today is National Weatherperson’s Day, and stations all over the country are showing their meteorologists and weathercasters some love (pictured: WWAY anchor Ashley Jacobs and meteorologist Tim Buckley).

According to the NWS, February 5 commemorates the birth of John Jeffries, one of America’s first weather observers, in 1744. Jeffries began observing the weather in 1774 and took the first balloon observation in 1784.

“It’s easy to forget that around the clock, dedicated meteorologists and weathercasters are vigilantly creating forecasts to help you plan your day, and issuing warnings to help keep you safe in the event of severe weather,” the NWS says of National Weatherperson’s Day.
