Having been a TV reporter on the streets of San Antonio, San Diego and LA, I've seen and reported on just about everything. So has my former cohort, Wendy Burch. But she just had an experience that I, thankfully, managed to avoid for 20 years. A guy vomited on her on live TV. Yes, he threw up on her and another man she was interviewing.
Here's the thing about Wendy. When I was working in LA, she worked for a competing station, but we got to know each other in the field. She's friendly, funny, smart and professional. She needed that wicked sense of humor on that 4th of July live report... a report she'll most likely never forget.
Have I told you lately how glad I am that I'm in radio?
