Part of working in live television is being prepared for anything. You never know what might happen and you always have to be ready to adjust something on the fly. You might suffer from technical difficulties, or you may have a coworker nail you with a snowball right before you're supposed to go on air.
That's FOX6 News Milwaukee reporter Amy DuPont. Her photographer hit her with a snowball and then claims it was an "accident." Hmm. Seems suspicious.
She handled it better than most people would in that situation, and people took note.
"Hilarious! This made my day, Amy! Smiling ear to ear! You took it like a champ....I would have killed him," wrote one person on Facebook. Another shared, "You were such a good sport about it!! Love the laughter-makes for a fun work day for everyone! Thanks for making me smile! I think you owe him one back when he is least expecting it!"
Most were just surprised by how much of a trooper the reporter was and how well she took the snowball where another anchor might have lost their cool altogether. "At least she can laugh about it," wrote another person commenting on FOX's public Facebook post.
Someone else added, "Lmao! Hilarious! She was a good sport about it! That's why I love Fox 6 always brings smiles and happiness. Really helps esp when the news isn't always good news."
This broadcast reminded viewers of an incident a few years ago when another one of their reporters, Angelica Duria, also had to give a report on snowfall.
They definitely seem to have a snow problem on their hands. Luckily their reporters have handled it with pure grace.
So it looks like we may get more very real reporting from Fox6 News Milwaukee the next time it snows over Wisconsin. I wonder how long that will be.
