News readers have a very professional job. They stick to their guns, they speak things what their teleprompter tells them to say, they hear their producer’s inputs, and they only talk to make sense. Not to forget, they always address the world and the nation in a logical way, and all eyes are always on them.
I will never like to work as a reporter as I would consistently be under the radar. In fact, their work is so tedious that they are consistently under the scanner of the recording cameras. One mistake and strike out, time to change your career path.
However, sometimes, in all the weight of professionalism, some readers make some surprising mistakes. And, unfortunately for them, these types of bloopers are quite essential to fuel in our own amusement.
So, today we are going to check out 10 of hilarious some news reader bloopers whilst being on air. Here we go;
The tussle between a news anchor and a field reporter
News anchors are quite proud of their jobs. They love the fact that they can easily control or set the pace of the news, and they also like to showcase that to everyone.
We are talking about asking questions when you really need to let your guest go. In this tussle, a news anchor and a field reporter had a go at each other on whether to ask the guest a question or not, much to our amusement.
Looking for some adventure or outdoor fun?
Sitting on an ATV is not an easy thing. As our news reporter, Stephanie can tell us. In fact, she can even display the sheer dangers of it. After watching this video, you will understand why everything outdoor is not always cool.
Do not try to be smart with a news reporter
Well, they do not exactly shove a mike in your mouth when they need the byte (well sort off). So we also should leave our reporters in peace. However, this dude understood the perils of trying to be funny in front of a news reporter. Watch the video and see the wrath the guy got, although most might say it was well deserved.
The cockroach versus the reporter
It’s very difficult to be a weatherman reporter. In this video here you can see that a tropical storm is about to hit the coast of Florida, and the reporter is right on the cue giving out to news to the residents of Miami. However a cockroach has other plans, as he crawls up and literally destroys the byte moment of the reporter. The report in a very unprofessional manner just runs away from the screen! When the dust settles down a bit, the reporter comes back to complete his story; however the cockroach crawls back into the picture again! Double Trouble!
Reporting excess snowfall during the winter times can be one of the most challenging projects for a reporter. He or she not only has to break the bad news to the world, but he or she also has to look professional whilst doing it. This dude had the same plan; however in his red jacket he got hit by snow cannon. We can easily hear the reporting talking about taking revenge; however the damage was already done, much to our amusement.
Skateboards are a strict No-no
This video teaches us that, we should never ride or use a thing that we have no clue about. This reporter though wishes she wasn’t the Ginny Pig in this demonstration. Fuelled by the pump to learn how to do an Ollie move, the girl reporter literally fails to make the move work. So much for skateboards!
Sled always wins
If you thought it can be cool to stand on a hill full of flying sleds; then you’ve thought wrong my friend. This reporter found that out in a pretty devastating way. He not only got collected by a sled, he even made a pretty dramatic stop and a landing. Things just did not work out for this professional reporter. However, if the idea to stand on the hill wasn’t his; then the one who took the decision should not step out from his or her home.
Watch where you are going dude
There was a robbery in the locality, and all the news crews came over to cover it. However, there was one dedicated reporter who wanted to do something special. So he did ‘walk the talk’ (quite literally). But Chuck did not see where exactly he was headed, and bang!
So much for reporting whilst talking! Dude men cannot multi-task really.
Do not take a chance with a snake
Many people hate snakes as they are ugly, slimy, and they display fear. That’s why when this reporter was about to interview a snake expert, we could envisage the outcome for a long time. Yes, and rightly so, the snake become too much friendly with the reporter, much to the dismay and fear of the reporter. For the producer, it’s either extra snake shows or the reporter’s job!
Birds don’t do it on purpose, or at least that’s what we use to say
The news came out that bird infestation of the Canadian type brown finches has been found locally. The infestation was located a house owner’s back yard. One brave soul reporter decided that he should be the ‘responsible one’ by covering the infestation. Even though he was hesitation to look up, he finally decided to stand right below the infested free. And, as soon as he opened his mouth to utter a word, the finches did not need a 2nd invitation.
So there you go the top ten bloopers some news readers have made in the recent years. Of course, our list of bloopers could have included news readers that have previously gone on air with slang languages and foul mouths, but we decided to keep it sweet, simple, harmless and funny. We did not want to offend anyone for that matter.
So watch these videos and enjoy your day!
