There are many different forms of entertainment on television. There are fictional shows, with a large range of genres to offer, such as drama or comedy. There are your sports channels, such as the annual long awaited NFL Super Bowl or the NBA All Star Game. And of course, there are the news channels – our source of real information and events that are happening in our world. One of the reason we love our news channels is because they tell us what’s going on around the world. They are the ones that are first on the scene when something groundbreaking happens, and we need our favorite news team to inform us about it.
But another reason we love watching the news is not just because of the news itself – we also just love the reporters. The overall culture in the news world has an air of professionalism, and we love that about it. But what about when the people that are supposed to be acting professional start making mistakes? What happens when their not-so-professional side comes out?
There have been anchors delivering news to the public ever since television was invented, so it’s natural for them to have a couple missteps. At the end of the day, even the best of the best are human, and we love them for that. While there is normally a sense of neutral objectivity on the complexions of reporters, too much objectivity would make them seem like outright robots, with no feelings or sense of humor, and we don’t want that. This is why most news anchors have certain trademarks, certain signature sayings that allow us to remember them and identify with them on a personal level. Reporters must remain professional, but they also must connect to the public.
But there have been many times when certain reporters went too far. There were moments when their sense of humor got the better of them, and we were happy that we were there to see it. In addition, there have been many occurences in which a reporter was out in the field, and external factors pushed them over the limit – such as a bug even flying into a reporter’s mouth!
Anyway, whether or not these occurrences were laughing matters, here are 30 times that embarrassing things happened unexpectedly to news reporters on camera. We are quite certain that you will not be disappointed with what you see.

Ah, probably one of the most beautiful capabilities that we humans possess is the ability to laugh. And isn’t the best laughter the kind that we cannot control? Ironically, sometimes this wild laughter occurs in the most awkward and inappropriate of situations, such as this Australian news anchor. She had been covering the story of an Irish adventurer, and she began to move on to something more tragic, when it happened – unfortunate news on camera, delivered with laughter – not a good mix.
