“Live” TV can be one crazy experience
News anchors eating vomit, sports anchors being out done by wild fans, and x-rated surprises! Those are actually things that have happened on “live television.”
News consultants beat into the heads of TV news managers that the audience wants to see us reporters live, live, live! That’s why when it’s snowing outside, we’re standing on an icy road telling you “It’s snowing outside.” When it’s hot outside, that’s why we’re locked in a car “live” as the heat rises and we’re almost passing out. Ok I’m exaggerating a bit.
But sometimes things can get really weird. These “live surprises” will make you laugh.
