Reporter is asked for a date on live TV
Courtney Friel is covering a California fire when she’s approached by a man carrying a dog.
If you are compiling a montage of 2014’s best news bloopers, here are two nominees for the final cut.
The first comes courtesy of KTLA in Los Angeles. Reporter Courtney Friel was on the scene of a brushfire in Rancho Cucamonga. As she was interviewing a person off camera, a man without a shirt approached her. Friel asked the bystander if he lived around the area. The man answered her but also had an inquiry of his own.
“Yeah,” he responded before asking, “Wow, you’re super pretty. Wanna go on a date sometime?”
Friel quickly informed the man that they were on live TV. He simply replied, “Awesome.”
Undeterred, the reporter actually continued to question the man. She finally moved on when he told her that he thought the brushfire was “pretty cool.”
