VIDEO: Phoenix Anchor Gets Hit With Water Balloons During Morning Newscast

File this one under “predictable.” During a segment on the KPNX morning newscast that involved kids running around with water balloons, Doug Meehan got soaked by a few elementary school children with impressively good aim (video above).

Meehan, alongside Emma Jade and meteorologist James Quiñones, were outside doing a segment on an upcoming charity race in Phoenix where children from the local community keep runners cool with water guns and water balloons. As the interview finished up, Jade asked them if they were going to use the rest of water balloons. Unsurprisingly, they responded by pelting Meehan, with one hitting him directly on the back of the head.

“Don’t worry. It’s all polyester,” Quiñones said of Meehan’s suit. “Just beat it off him.”

Phoenix Stations Cover Shootings at Office Park

Phoenix TV stations went live with wall-to-wall coverage after a shooting at a local office complex where police said five people were injured, three of those with gunshot wounds.

The shooting started around 10:30 a.m. when police say a man described as a white male in his 60s opened fire inside a building near 16th street and Glendale avenue in Phoenix.

FOX owned KSAZ broke the story first, but stayed on air the shortest amount of time initially.  The station started with Ron Hoon in the studio at 10:58 a.m. then went to a helicopter shot with Hoon giving an update of the situation and a “we’ll have more for you in one hour” before rejoining regular programming.
