The wonderful thing about live TV reporting is that the cameras are always rolling and even the slightest of stuff-ups quickly makes its way onto social media blooper reels.

And that, as regular readers would well know, makes rich fodder for B&T.

In fact, it’s been such a week of live TV reporter calamities, today we’re bringing you not one but three. Check ’em out below:

SOAKED 

Canadian television journalist Shelley Steeves was certainly in the thick of the action for her recent report. Reporting live from a boggy field for Global News, Steeves forgot about the nearby irrigation system that promptly gave the enthusiastic scribe a live on-air soacking. Check it out:

ATTACKED

Meanwhile, things quickly turned nasty for WHEC reporter Charles Molineaux at a Black Lives Matter protest at Rochester in upstate New York City. Protestors weren’t too happy about the media attention and quickly turned on Molineaux and his security guard, one even brandishing a knife. Thankfully, both managed to escape without any injury.

FAINTS

And lastly to Australia. ABC reporter Michael Rennie was reporting live from outside JBS beef processing plant in Ipswich following the announcement of 600 job cuts. Rennie soon became disoriented and looked like he was about to faint. Studio host Joe O’Brien quickly jumped in and ended the report. Rennie later tweeted he was fine and that the incident was caused by dehydration.
