There was a small earthquake early this morning in southern California, (4.4 on the Richter Scale) just as the morning news shows were hitting the air, and as always, the video of the on-air reactions have ended up on YouTube.

BTW, this is why doing TV News must be more difficult than  ever.  Any mistake, any misstep, anything out of the ordinary suddenly becomes fodder for the rest of us to ridicule and laugh at.

And if we’re honest with ourselves, unless you’re in that chair when that earthquake hits, you don’t have any idea how you’d react.

The reporters from KTLA in Los Angeles were really good sports about it all.

Something tells me I’d be in dive under the desk camp.

The good news–it was a minor earthquake and no serious injuries or property damage was reported.

 

OK….now you can watch and chuckle.
