KPRC Tweets Rival Station’s Photos of Truck Accident

After a tanker truck overturned on a Houston highway Tuesday, NBC affiliate KPRC tweeted photos showing a rival station’s coverage of the accident. Houston media blogger Mike McGuff spotted the social media slip-up.

KPRC tweeted the screengrabs, which clearly show ABC O&O KTRK‘s graphics and a chyron displaying the name of KTRK’s morning chopper reporter, on Tuesday. The tweets have since been deleted.

In response, KTRK produced a promo video (watch it here).

“When you really need video of breaking news, who are you going to watch? Well, Channel 2 knows who to turn to,” the promo says. “They used SkyEye13 shots of a flipped tanker on on 610, tweeting it to their viewers! You’re welcome, Channel 2.”
