Everybody Makes Mistakes. Take Fox News, For Example
All of us in the radio and TV biz have made flubs. Of course, at our level, it isn’t quite as devastating if we make a mistake –unless we happen to say something that isn’t FCC friendly. And we’ve had our bloopers, but nothing like these:
I remember when I first started–in fact I think it was my first day, we had the weatherman on the phone. It was Bob Kovachick from NewsChannel 13 here in Albany. He gave his 4 day prognostication, and ended with–“Ok guys, that’s my forecast-back to you”. Well, I followed with “Bob -I have a question!!”. At that point my partner, the late great Uncle Fred Horton, shook his head nervously as if to say “shut up!”
Well I didn’t realize that Bob was prerecorded!. I was talking to a recording!!
I’ve made many many more faux paus since, but I must say that I got a huge kick out of some of the mistakes over at the Fox News Network. (Glen Beck was their biggest, but I digress). Check these out! A few of these are a little risque so you may want to keep the kids away:
What’s the biggest screw-up you’ve ever had at work? Send it in. We might make a show out of it!
