You have to check out this video of a TV reporter in Waterloo, Iowa who complains about his job assignment covering the winter storm that is ripping through the central U.S. this week.


Finally, some honesty in the news media! Man, I really don’t blame Mr. Woodley for being ticked off, but I think it’s hilarious that he’s complaining about this every time they cut to him to report on the storm.

According to an article on, this video was viewed over a million times during the first twelve hours after it was posted. Celebrities such as Judd Apatow, David Cross, Rich Eisen, and Rex Chapman all praised the reporter and his antics on social media.

If you work indoors like I do, it does seem a little harsh that his supervisors made him get out of bed that early in the morning, and sent him outdoors to cover a story during one of the worst storms of the season. I can’t imagine my boss telling me I should do my radio show outdoors during a rain or wind storm here in Las Vegas. I don’t know what names I would call that person, but it would not be nice.

I especially liked Mark Woodley’s sign-off on one of his reports where he invites listeners to stay tuned while he gets crankier as the morning wears on. Funny stuff.

Well, I hope you don’t have to travel through all of this bad weather that is hitting the central U.S. right now, and heading towards the East Coast at the moment. I think I’ll stay right here in Las Vegas during Christmas weekend where high temperatures should hit about 60°.

TV News Reporter Gets Hit By A Car On Live TV, Continues Her Shot

A seemingly mundane news story taking place in West Virginia turned into a wild video captured on live television when news reporter Tori Yorgey was struck by a car.

The video, which has been shared on social media, shows a car entering the frame and hitting Yorgey out of frame. “Oh my god! I just got hit by a car, but I’m okay. I just got hit by a car, but I’m okay, Tim.”

“Well, that’s a first for you on TV, Tori,” anchor Tim Irr responds with a very calm demeanor.

When the woman who struck her asks if she’s okay, Yorgey cheerfully responded, “I’m okay — you know, that’s live TV for you — it’s all good.” Surprisingly, this actually wasn’t the first time she was struck by a car. “I actually got hit by a car in college, too, just like that. I am so glad I’m okay!”

Picking the camera back up, which was mounted on a tripod, Yorgey says into the camera, “It’s a one-woman band.” She made light of the situation by stating, “You know, it’s my last week on the job and I think this would happen. Specifically to me, Tim.”

“My whole life just flashed before my eyes,” Yorgey said in response to being asked if she was hit down low or up high. “But this is live TV and everything’s okay.” She then continued her story on the water main break happening behind her. Watch the video below:

Twitter users had split reactions to what happened to Yorgey on live television. See what they had to say below.
