A local news reporter from ABC's Texoma station made an unfortunate gaffe on air.
While waiting for the program to return from commercial break, two reporters stood camera ready waiting to deliver the weather report. One reporter did not realize she was on air and announced that she looked "so pale." Her horrified colleague nudged her, whispering "you're on air!"
An expression of pure horror overtook her face as she promptly launched into the weather report.
This reporter is not alone in making such a mistake. Just last month, Fox News' Bob Beckel did not realize Sean Hannity's show was back from commercial and dropped the f-bomb on air.
