Keeley was wrapping up a live report about the need for local routes to be cleared, when four plows approached, as if on cue, and showed viewers the amount of force it takes to get the snow out of the middle of the road and onto the side of the road where Keeley was standing.
To his credit, Keeley stayed on his feet and finished his report.
To get ready for Sunday’s Oscars, the Washington, D.C. FOX owned station WTTG said they “decided to take a closer look at five of those films — everything from the acting to the costumes!”
Which means they enlisted anchors and reporters to act out the scenes with varying degrees of success. Check it out.
Happy Pre-Oscar Friday everybody!
Since neither of the following bloopers merits a solo post, TVSpy thought we’d deliver them in a double shot of pure schadenfreude.
The first comes to us by way of Gossip Extra’s Jose Lambiet. It’s Felicia Rodriguez from the West Palm Beach ABC affiliate WPBF dropping an “Oh shit, yeah!” while tossing to a story about a big lizard.
With all the talk about covering news with airborne drones, St. Louis FOX affiliate KTVI has decided to swim against the tide by showing off its news boat.
yesterday, the station revealed AquaFOX, an Axis A24 wrapped in station branding.
KTVI news director Audrey Prywitch reminded TVSpy while St. Louis is in the middle of the country it is on the Mississippi River, and surrounded by many other rivers and lakes. She said possible stories to use the boat include flooding, predatory fish invading local rivers and lakes, drinking and boating stories and even a river view of the fireworks on July 4th.
In case you think the boat will be trolling lakes and rivers 24 hours a day, Prywitch said the station will call Stateamind Water Sports, the boating company they’ve partnered with, at least 24 hours ahead of time to ready the boat for use.
Scotto sued Kelly for pain and suffering. Kelly counter sued for $11 billion trillion.
As part of the evidence against her co-anchor, Scotto showed Judge Marilyn Milian a greatest hits clip of Kelly throwing a hula hoop at Scotto’s head, dumping water on her during a segment and getting sandwiched on top of her during a women’s football demo. Kelly wore an arm sling in hopes of winning sympathy from the audience he kept calling a jury.
Kelly lost. According to the story, he now has to peel potatoes. But after he was repeatedly called unathletic and clumsy he may have already served his sentence.
It happened yesterday around 3:30 p.m. on the Upper East Side. A WNYW crew was on its way to another story when it saw a crowd in the street.
The station said the woman was trying to get a cab when she went into labor. “She was like, ‘oh, my God, the baby’s coming’,” one witness told WNYW. “And then I could see the baby’s head coming out.”
According to the station, mother and baby are doing well at a local hospital.

Orlando FOX owned station WOFL is set to begin a six week test of a new Friday night show called “The Cue.”
