article imageWGN morning news anchors enraged after missing bridge implosion

Chicago - If we happen to come across something exciting in the city, some of us are going to patiently wait. If we miss it, though, we're going to be upset. This is what happened to the WGN morning news anchors.
WGN is calling the video broadcast: “WGN Morning News Bridge Fail” after a group of news anchors, Robin Baumgarten, Paul Konrad and Larry Potash, waited several minutes for a live shot of a bridge implosion that was going to occur at any moment.
However, after cutting away from the actual implosion to speak with the weatherman about someone dressed as a taco parachuting into a pool of salsa, the news anchors missed it. This led to moans of disappointment and shock. Baumgarten began to repeatedly yell: “Are you kidding me!” She then stated: “This is a metaphor for our show; another crash and burn.”
Later in the broadcast, the WGN anchors reviewed some comments they received about their reaction: “Ooops someone switched back to Paul too soon but your reactions were worth it lol,” said Leo Rohan. “That’s why I love WGN. You never know what you will see and what you will miss,” said another viewer, Liz Brandt McAllister.
As of 1:16 p.m., the video has received more than 8.2 million views on YouTube. WGN garners on average between 10,000 and 40,000 hits on their YouTube videos.
