There is nothing like being a reporter in the snow

Reporters aren’t afraid of bad weather, not even snow storms. After a while you have to think on how to keep warm and how to make the next “live shot” interesting.

KAYAKING IN A PARKING LOT

Reporter in Charleston got creative with a kayak, rope and the news car. She found a good snow covered parking lot and had some fun.

SERVE UP THE COFFEE PLEASE!

Reporter Tracie Strahan got a nice surprise as she was being pelted with freezing rain and snow on her face. It wasn’t a Starbucks delivery but warm coffee is welcomed.

Best cold weather live shot, thanks WGN’s Nancy Loo

Standing in freezing weather delivering a live shot is part of the job of any television reporter. We’ve all done them.

We’ve also heard the news anchor in the warm studio toss it to us out in the field with “How cold is it?” That made me cringe every time.

Well Nancy Loo of WGN in Chicago gets my kudos. She had one of the shortest weather reports, got a standing ovation and left me thinking “Why didn’t I think of that?”

I love this live shot. Nice job Nancy!
