It turns out there’s no such thing as an anonymous photobomb.
The internet has been abuzz with the video of WHTM reporter Dave Marcheskie doing a live shot from a state representative’s victory party while a man drank out of a flower vase behind him. The video was even featured on Jimmy Kimmel Wednesday night.
“We have the deepest respect for our colleagues at CBS 21 as they do for us and we really want to stay focused on that respect and move on from this ‘photo bomb’,” WHTM news director Dave Jones told TVSpy. “We have an obligation to serve our audience and because of that we think it’s best to not discuss this matter beyond that and move forward, staying focused on our mission of service.”
WHP news director Mike Bothwell told the The Patriot-News he couldn’t talk about it and referred the paper to the GM.
While reporting the news that Lupita Nyong’o was named People’s Most Beautiful Person for 2014, some anchors struggled with the pronunciation of the Oscar-winning actress’ name. “Jimmy Kimmel Live” helpfully assembled some of the funnier attempts:
In case you haven’t been paying attention, local reporters have become a favorite target of late night shows. Monday, Kimmel ran a report from March 28 when Kolk was getting reaction about that night’s earthquake in LA.
Kolk asked several people on Hollywood Boulevard if they felt the quake. They all said ‘No.’
“He saw on social media there was an earthquake nobody felt it,” said Kimmel. “But he went out. So please keep us in your prayers.”
But Kolk had a comeback, telling viewers on KTLA last night Kimmel left out the part where he wrapped his report by saying, “So nobody felt thing a thing, much like being an audience member at a Jimmy Kimmel taping.”
A quick check of TVeyes showed Kolk didn’t deliver the Kimmel line live. Kolk told TVSpy he taped that part after he became Kimmel’s target.
He said he brought the same suit he wore on March 28 just in case he was allowed to do the skit. He was. Though he said he was warned it was a fight he wasn’t going to win.
Jimmy Kimmel took over for KABC sports anchor Rob Fukuzaki on ABC owned station’s evening newscast Monday night (video above). “Today is National Rob Fukuzaki Day,” Kimmel said. “All over the country there is crowds of people taking to the streets, celebrating Rob’s life, celebrating Rob’s work, celebrating Rob’s impact.”
Saying he wanted to give Fukuzaki the night off, Kimmel finished the KABC sportscast: “At the Winter Olympics, the U.S. team only won one gold today. And it was in ice dancing, which isn’t even a sport. In fact, I’m not sure it’s even dancing,” he joked. “All I know is, I don’t like it.” [h/t NewsBlues]
Late night talk show host and funnyman, Jimmy Kimmel called out the local Los Angeles TV stations for their near ‘breaking news’ style while covering the recent dip in temperatures in the area.
“It’s so cold,” said Kimmel. “I had to wear two tank tops to work today,” noting that the day this was broadcast the high temperature was a frosty 51 degrees.
ABC made a primetime programming switch this week, swapping “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and “Nightline.” Beginning Tuesday, Kimmel’s program began airing at 11:35pmET/10:35pmCT and Nightline will air at 12:35amET/11:35pmCT.
Some ABC affiliates, including WISN in Milwaukee and KSTP in Minneapolis, are opting to air Kimmel later than its scheduled broadcast time in favor of local newscasts. WISN general manager Jan Wade told the Milwaukee Business Journal that the success of the station’s hour-long 10 p.m. newscast is the reason for delaying Kimmel’s program.
“We don’t want to abandon something that’s a strength for us,” Wade said.
KSTP will expand its 10 p.m. newscast to an hour in the absence of “Nightline.” Kimmel will air at 11:00pmCT.

The 60-minute broadcast will premiere on January 8. The station says the newscast “will be staffed with more reporters, more photographers and additional resources in order to tackle topics that typically are not featured in a traditional 35 minute news format.”
