Gotta love when news anchors around the country think that they are being original and then a late night show shows them that they are not.
Last week, Apple announced that they were getting rid of the jack holes with the iPhone 7 and newsrooms all over the US thought they would write, “Hit the road Jack,” in their scripts. How do we know this? Jimmy Kimmel Live‘ put together a video of several of them doing that and I love how witty they thought they were. They were not, but don’t tell them that or they will tell you to, “Hit the road Jack.”
Last week, Steve Burton was holding an alligator during a wild animal segment on WBZ, when he decided to bring it closer to the crocodile that herpetologist Michael Ralbovsky was holding. Only problem is that the two sea monsters didn’t get along, so the alligator freaked out on him and tried to get away. Even though it tried its best to break free, the Boston anchor’s sports skills came into play and he didn’t drop him. Something I would’ve done as I ran off the news set.
When it comes to Burton, I am sure he is going from the pig skin to alligator skin. Alligator shoes, belt, wallet anything else he can get his hands on that is made out of it.
Yesterday, after covering the Republican and Democratic National Conventions for two long weeks, CNN partied as hard they could! The newspeople did it by getting down to Neil Diamond’s Sweet Caroline. Can you think of anything Whiter than that? It was as White as Wolf Blitzer’s hair and beard. Did you see him trying to Rock out to the chorus? It was even more boring than watching his daily newscast.
It is really hot and humid in Philadelphia today and it is hard not to sweat in that type of weather. If you are a male news anchor covering the Democratic National Convention, then you have to wear a suit with a jacket and that makes you even hotter when you are reporting outside. So hot, if you are Today‘s Carson Daly, you will sweat through your button down shirt even though it is paper thin. It’s like he entered a wet T-shirt contest and didn’t even know it.
I bet he can’t wait to get back on The Voice where the studio is ice cold thanks to air conditioning. Air conditioning is our good friend!
WTAE aired a story about a new study on butter’s healthiness, and when they came out of it Ryan Beesley found out he is not as a smooth as butter. The meteorologist asked Mona Nair, “What do you think about boner?” Realizing her weatherman’s mistake, she said, “Butter? Well, I am a huge butter fan.” Wait, which is she really a huge fan of?
I wonder how Beesley will be able to weather this storm.
