Sometimes, meteorologists need to heed their own advice. As Wichita, Kansas meteorologist J.D. Rudd was telling residents to hunker down ahead of the incoming tornado, he is told, “It’s our time to go”. A lone radar image was left on the screen, but the news anchors scramble as they make their way to their bunker. [...]

His colleague back at the news desk instantly caught on, bursting out laughing and letting DiCarlo know that he had been punk’d. The weatherman seemed [...]
You and your classmates are about to appear on live TV. Granted, you’re only in the background of an interview. So what do you do to call a little attention to yourself? You give your buddy a wet willie for the whole world to see, of course. Word on the street is that this student [...]
KTLA’s Jim Castillo really like tennis shoes. We know this to be true, because when he announced that an upcoming segment of the newscast would feature Julie Weiss, the so-called “Marathon Goddess” (a woman who has run over 50 marathons in one year), Jim announced that she had some “nice tennies,” or did he?
