VIDEO: Spider Makes Cameo During Newscast

Todd Kunz, anchor for Idaho Falls CBS affiliate KIDK had a special guest star for his 10 p.m. newscast.

Kunz was reading a story about a local landfill when a spider dropped from the ceiling on its silk (about 20 seconds into the video) and into his shot.  It lingered for a little screen time, then dropped out of view.

“I could see something falling from above in my peripheral vision and thought it was just lint or something, but when it kept pausing, I knew what it was,” Kunz told TVSpy.  “Knowing my next story was an OTS, I thought to myself, this is going to be bad if he stops right in the camera view… and sure enough, he did.”

Kunz said viewers, concerned the spider was a dangerous Hobo spider, offered to spray the studio for him.   No need to worry, though.  The spider did not land on Kunz.  He said the most difficult moment during the descent was trying to keep a straight face watching his weatherman, Steve Cannon, watch the spider.
