When a cockroach decided to audition for a news caster position, they aren’t always welcomed with open arms. Watch the funny video below!
Hats off to and applause for the way Mary Beth McDade, a reporter with KTLA News in Los Angeles, handled herself when a cockroach decided it wanted to be the headline for her LIVE news broadcast.
With her microphone in one hand and her notes in another, a startled Mary Beth was quick to react when a large cockroach flew toward her, landed on her chest, and began to scamper toward the open neckline on her dress. After realizing what was happening, one of Mary Beth’s male colleagues rushed to help her but hesitated to help due to the intimate position of the insect. The ordeal came to an end with the reporter quickly brushing the cockroach off as she nervously giggled, smiled, and took more than a few deep breathes to calm herself down before going live on her KTLA live broadcast.
Mary Beth McDade was a brave woman. Many of us, including me, would have screamed, dropped the microphone and run as we clawed at the front of our dresses to get rid of the cockroach. Instead, she stayed relatively poised without getting a single strand of her lovely blond hair out of place.
