WATCH: WPXI Crew Member Makes Cameo Appearance During News

WPXI evening anchor David Johnson had an unexpected visitor on set during the 11:00 p.m. newscast Friday night.

Coming out of the break, while the anchor for the Pittsburgh, PA, NBC affiliate was reading a story about a man who used a taxi as a getaway car for a bank robbing spree, a crew member, identified on Johnson’s facebook page as George, wandered on set behind the anchor. Johnson noticed and smiled, but continued reading while George made his way off set.

Johnson’s comment on facebook seemed to sum up the crew member’s brush with fame, “Hey, it’s live TV.”
