San Antonio Anchor Breaks Down During Report on Burned Child

622x350KSAT anchor Isis Romero was unable to continue reading a story Monday, overcome by emotions as she told viewers of the San Antonio ABC affiliate of an infant badly injured in a fireworks accident. Romero, who is expecting a child, apologized on her Facebook page for becoming overwhelmed by the news:

“My apologies everyone. We did a story about a 4 month old baby that got burned by fireworks, and then a story about another baby who was left abandoned on a subway platform, and I just couldn’t get through it. As a mommy-to-be, my heart just couldn’t take it. Those poor, precious babies. Thanks to Steve (Spriester) for jumping in for me.”

Viewers, who hate fake tears but respond overwhelmingly to real ones, flooded Romero’s post to voice their support. “I immediately knew what happened and I got a lump in my throat thinking of you,” wrote viewer Cecilia Herrera Diaz. “Steve made a flawless transition. You don’t have to apologize for being human!”

Another viewer, Lea Phelps, said she was deeply moved. “I was in my kitchen when the story started and I heard your sweet voice. Then, I heard Steves voice. I asked my husband to replay the story and sat down to watch. Isis I have to tell you. I now have a new found respect for you. You brought tears to my eyes. Your sweet love and compassion was so evident. Thank you for being you.”

Ursula Pari Shifting to Earlier Newscasts on KSAT

Ursula Pari, an evening anchor on San Antonio ABC-affiliate KSAT, is making the move from anchoring the 10 p.m. newscast to anchoring the 4, 5 and 6 p.m. newscasts in order to spend more time with her kids.

“I’ll be home at 7 p.m,” she told the San Antonio Express-News. “I can have a late dinner with my kids, help with homework, talk about what happened to them in their day without feeling so rushed.”

Pari’s last day on the 10 p.m. newscast will be November 30. She will be replaced by weekend anchor Isis Romero, who frequently reports for the program.

“I really think people are going to like Isis a lot, if they don’t already,” Pari said. “I’m really rooting for her. She’s more than qualified and competent to do a great job.”
