WATCH: WTXF Reporter Just Misses ‘Full Moon’ Shot Behind Him

Through no fault of its own, Philadelphia FOX owned station WTXF gave viewers an intimate look at a man’s backside during a live report last week.

As reporter Omari Fleming was wrapping up his report about theft in the Roxborough area, someone who appeared to be a teenage boy ran into the shot, turned around and dropped his shorts.

By the time Fleming noticed, the culprit was gone. “I’m sorry,” Fleming told viewers a few seconds after the full moon was revealed.  “Something was going on behind me.”

Reporter Mike Matthews Cut Loose at WREG

Mike Matthews, a local government reporter who joined WREG in 1997, has been let go from the Memphis CBS-affiliate.

“We’re not leaving because we want to,” Matthews wrote on Twitter. “The station felt it was in their best interest if they wouldn’t renew my contract.”

The Memphis Commercial Appeal reported that Matthews is the third reporter to leave WREG this month. The other two are Tom Powell, who started at WSJV in South Bend on September 26, and Omari Fleming, who will debut on WTXF in Philadelphia on November 1.

Matthews is known at WREG as “The Watchdog,” a nickname that grew out of the pledge he uses to end his reports: “I’ll be watching.” Read more
