Colorado Springs Morning Anchors Demolish General Manager’s Office

File this video into the “sometimes it’s just fun to watch people break things” column.

KXRM, The FOX affiliate for Colorado Springs is getting a new newsroom. In the spirit of helping out, the morning news crew of Kimberly Price, Craig Coffey and Justin Chambers thought it would be fun to demolish the office of general manager Steve Dant without him in it, of course. Keep in mind, these are the same anchors who brought us, “Morning Anchors Impersonate Each Other for Opposite Day

Needless to say, no one was injured in the recording of this video except maybe the pride of Chambers who didn’t look to have a whole lot of velocity on that fastball. Read more

Morning reporter Craig Coffey did his best Justin Chambers impersonation by appearing at various elevations in front of the weather board yelling, “The rails are off!”  Co-Anchor and meteorologist Chambers did his best impersonation of Coffey by using a lot of hand gestures and hoots of laughter.
