SOMEONE GET THIS REPORTER TO THE HOSPITAL IMMEDIATELY!!!

He is obviously having a STROKE! He’s slurring his words, not making sense, and needs medical help IMMEDIATELY!!!

I’ve seen this before. MINUTES COUNT!

He says “in his 38 career” twice. If he wasn’t having a stroke, he would have corrected it, but he can’t because he’s HAVING A STROKE!!!

You expect people from the txt generation to be able to speak?


Ask not what your country can do FOR you; ask what they are about to do TO YOU!!

Wow! 
Yeah, that was rough.

To be fair his actual live shot on News 12 at 6pm was better. Not great but, much closer to reality.

Its clear he hasn't had much on-air experience if any before this, at least based on his resume on the station website.
But you can get better with practice.

I'm pretty sure this wasn't anything but an "accidental trench collapse." "Accidental," being more than unnecessary to say.

Thoughts and prayers to the victim's family.

So, did the reporter have a stroke or was he just drunk?

He was rushed. No, it was not a good shot, but it happens. I saw the same thing in the Grand Rapids market. Late night shooting, reporter just got to the scene, live shot unprepared. He will learn and get better and hopefully leave ABC 12 for a better job and not tank his career at ABC 12 like Matt and Angie.

I agree. The best move reporters can make is getting the H E double hockey sticks out of there. Matt Franklin acts like a diva. Angie Ostrichneck pretends to care and Mr. Part-time Hotrod Harris swears at his kids and grandkids at his semi-retirement party.
