KMSP reporter M.A. Rosko wins the “TVSpy Iron Chin Award” (if there was such a thing) for remaining conscious after her live faceplant while reporting on the opening of the John Rose Minnesota Skating Oval.
Rosko was on ice skates and marveling about being blown backwards because of the wind when she fell face first on the ice. She then got up, brushed herself off, told the folks in the studio she wasn’t alright, and continued on with the report.
Her web colleagues at the FOX owned Minneapolis station posted the video and called it an “epic faceplant.” The story on the station’s website also said the ice oval “offers a safe rink for skaters.”
Huffman, who was managing editor, started at the station in July of 2002 as senior assignment editor.
The Minnesota native started his career in the early 90′s at Minneapolis CBS owned station WCCO.
Before he entered politics in 1992, Grams spent 10 years as the primary anchor for KMSP, the Fox O&O in Minneapolis-St. Paul. He was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives, representing Minnesota’s 6th Congressional district, in 1992. Two years later, he was elected to the U.S. Senate, where he served a single term from 1995 to 2001.
According to KMSP, Grams was diagnosed with colon and liver cancer two years ago. He entered hospice care in September.

When a hailstorm pummeled parts of Minneapolis Tuesday night, it left a lot of broken windshields in its wake. During his weather report, KMSP chief meteorologist Ian Leonard discovered his car was now part of the story he was reporting.
“Every car? Including mine?” Leonard asked someone off camera as he was telling viewers about the cars in the station parking lot getting hit by the golf ball sized hail. After a beat of silence he continued. “Alright. Every car in the FOX 9 parking lot, including mine, is now without a windshield. ”
Maury Glover, a reporter for the FOX owned station, didn’t escape the storm’s wrath either. His car was also damaged. Glover did a live report from the station parking lot and ran some footage showing the storm in action. You can watch that video after the jump.
“Usually we have to drive pretty far to find storm damage like this,” said Glover. “But unfortunately this time some of the worst of it happened in our own back yard.” Read more
