“Jessica, We Are Live”: News Reporters Have Awkward Exchange On TV
We've all had some weird and awkward moments at work, some including when one of us corrects another and then realize we're the one who is wrong. Luckily for a lot of people, that isn't broadcast live to the entire country for everyone to see.
A sports anchor in Namibia with the Namibian Broadcasting Corporation and her co-anchor have gone viral after a painfully awkward exchange happened while they were live.
Elmarie Kapunda went to throw to her colleague, Jessica Kaimu, about an upcoming sporting event. Kapunda went on to further explain the segment when she was cut off by Kaimu.
"No, you're not going to do that. You're just going to greet me, and say, 'take it away,'" she said.
"Jessica, we are live." Kapunda responded, leading to an awkward silence that lasted until the clip ends.
It just goes to show that you should be respectful, and probably treat a room full of cameras as though you're being watched.
