The Craziest Things News Anchors Have Said On Air

Being a news anchor on live television has its perks, but it can also be very stressful. These 24 crazy news fails make the anchors become the news and everything pretty much goes downhill from there.

Miss Sunshine

Well, if the weather forecast isn’t going to give you your daily dose of sunshine, this weather woman will! We see what you did there, tech guy behind the scenes.

Promising Weather Report

Don’t be too quick to judge – this weather woman definitely knows how to keep her audience glued to their screens. Unfortunately, many commuters were complaining later that evening that this route home wasn’t the fastest one.

Keep Your Cool

A professional newscaster would never let background noise or painful accidents affect the broadcast – after all, the only thing that’s important is delivering news to the public. We feel bad for the guy in the back, though.

Camel Toeing In The North

We’re guessing that since the forecast didn’t look promising that morning, the weather woman decided to distract the viewers with something else. Who’s paying attention to the screen in the background after this?!


Looks like this weather man’s dogsitter was on vacation, or it was “bring your dog to the office” day. Either way, we can’t deny that this little mishap made the news a little nicer to watch.

Am I In The Shot?

Ah, what would we regular people not do to appear on live television! The only problem is that while we sneak up on news reporters and think its innocent fun and games, the consequences could be… tragic. We hope this lady recovered fast!

Times Square Shenanigans

Well, it’s definitely high o’clock somewhere in the world, and we’re 99% certain its in Times Square! It’s all right, we’ve all gotten stage fright at some point in our lives.

Well, That’s A Little Awkward

You know that feeling when you’re live on television and suddenly your dress almost goes over your head? Yeah, we don’t either, but apparently everything is possible when the whole world is watching. A tad awkward, but a little humorous.

Are We Live?!

Corporate life is never easy, especially when they don’t tell you in advance that there is going to be a live broadcast happening right in the middle of the office that afternoon! Thanks, Melanie, now I’m on live television.

It’s Hailing!

Whether the meteorologist is very excited or upset is hard to tell, but the audience that day must have been exceptionally happy. Who cares that it’s only 11 degrees in the south-east when you’re about to get the ratings of your life?!

Where Were You Friday Night, Theodore?

How awkward is it to be reporting disturbing news like this and realize you might be a suspect in a crime? We hope we’ll never have to find out, but Theodore here knows first hand. Let’s hope it was a prank.

Way Too Excited

We hope that the lady in the shot gave this guy her number, otherwise we’d have trouble explaining why he got so distracted. Turned out to be a great news blooper, though!

Busted Munching On…

You know what they say – act in life as though cameras are following you around 24/7. This guy decided that this life motto is not for him and went all out munching on camera. Wonder if this put his political career in jeopardy at all.

Free Friday Hugs

We’d have absolutely no questions if this news broadcast was live from New York; it seems like the kind of place where people would walk around giving out free hugs. Or maybe this lady just really wanted to be on live TV.

News Slip-Up

This blouse revealed a little more than the audience bargained for, but hey, we can’t really complain. The news anchor has some important news to deliver, please don’t get too distracted!

Perfectly Timed Bloopers

This is either a horrible prank by the camera crew or a hilarious coincidence! Either way, this must have been one entertaining live news broadcast.

No Distractions!

This journalist just wanted to report some sports news in peace – why is that too much to ask for?! He may not have paid much attention to the vibrations in the moment, but it must have left a buzzing in his ear for the next day or two at least.

Unboxing Fail

You know those YouTube videos where people unbox new iPhones and show off how nice and smooth they are? This is probably what it was supposed to be like, but… looks like these guys will have to queue all over again.

Button Popped

We’re not sure what kind of news this lady is reporting, but… they might not be that serious at all. Let’s cut her some slack – was her first day and no one told her about the office dress code.

You Had One Job!
