Weatherman Literally Gets Blown Away on Set – Video Today's forecast: a STRONG gust of wind

Weatherman Literally Gets Blown Away on Set

The life of a broadcast journalist can have its pros and cons.

Pros: you’re on television, all eyes are always on you, you’re dressed nice, you have scripts to read from, you’re interacting with your audience every single day. Cons: what you’re broadcasting could be a dangerous, life-or-death situation, could be life or death. That was the case for TV3’s Irish weatherman Deric Hartigan. During a routine weather report, Hartigan was blown away with his umbrella by a strong gust of wind. His in-studio cohorts at the studio couldn’t do much but laugh at the situation. Moments later, Hartigan comes back on screen and shakes off the embarrassment.

Now while it wasn’t a dangerous situation, Hartigan could only laugh at himself and has since taken to Twitter to share some of the memorable responses he has received for his video.

Yes, the life of a journalist can definitely have its moments, but that’s what we do it for right?
