Anchor Sharon Reed Moves to KMOV

Sharon Reed has joined KMOV, the St. Louis CBS affiliate as anchor for the 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. news.

Fooled By Fake Twitter Account, Miami Station Falsely Reports Heat’s Signing of Ray Allen

Miami’s WSVN got a little too excited about the Heat’s potential signing of Ray Allen as the Fox-affiliate issued a breaking news update during its 11 p.m. newscast Thursday to declare that the NBA champions had agreed to a deal with the former All-Star, apparently based on a tweet from a Twitter impostor.

WSVN sports anchor Mike DiPasquale attributed the news to Yahoo! Sports, but it doesn’t appear that Yahoo! Sports reported anything of the sort. Both Deadspin and Bleacher Report report that WSVN was likely fooled by a fake Twitter account falsely attributed to influential Yahoo! Sports columnist Adrian Wojnarowski. Read more

When WSVN reporter Kevin Ozebek went to cover the Miami Heat championship parade, he definitely didn’t expect to become part of a viral video from the most awkward man in the world.

YouTube auteur Kyle has developed a large following for his excruciatingly awkward reporting, and Ozebek found himself competing for an interview with Kyle’s shotgun mic at the parade.  It didn’t go too well (run-in begins around 1:04 mark).

Cleveland Meteorologist Freaks Out About Miami Heat Championship During Forecast

WEWS meteorologist Mark Johnson couldn’t contain his frustration after local hero turned villain LeBron James won his first NBA championship Thursday night.

Johnson broke from his forecast during the ABC-affiliate’s late newscast following the game to rant about the outcome (and it was difficult for the weathercaster to avoid the topic considering that the teams were the Heat and the Thunder).

“Light rain downtown, no thunder. Son of a gun, we could have used some thunder,” Johnson said (video after the jump). Read more

VIDEO: New England Anchor Reports Celtics Playoff Game Ended in Tie

The Boston Celtics beat the Miami Heat in overtime on Sunday night, evening their best-of-seven NBA Eastern Conference Championship series at 2-2.

But when anchor Meghan Torjussen of WMTW in Portland, ME went to do the sports update during the station’s 11 p.m. newscast Sunday, the game had apparently just ended regulation so Torjussen reported that the contest had ended in a tie (video above).
