Robert Kovacik: Cockroach Crawls All Over NBC Reporter During Live Shot (VIDEO)

NBC4 reporter Robert Kovacik kept is cool as a large cockroach crawled all over his shoulders during a live shot in West Los Angeles.

Just a few seconds after the NBC reporter started his report, a cockroach seemed to scurry up his left arm, over his shoulder, behind his neck to the right side of his body and back again.

Kovacik tossed back to the NBC news anchor in the studio, without flinching. He later joked about the experience over Twitter.

Kovacik isn't the only reporter to be joined by a creepy crawler. KIDK anchor Todd Kunz was mid-report when a spider dropped down in front of his face.
