NICK EICHER, HOST: One of the nice things about working from home is that you usually don’t have to dress up—unless of course you’re a television news reporter for ABC!
Reporter Will Reeves was on “Good Morning America” this week with a story on drones delivering medications.
Reeves reported from his home office, with a natty dress shirt and a blue buttoned jacket. But it’s what he wasn’t wearing that provided more than a few unintentional laughs for viewers.
Everything appeared normal at first. An image known as a chyron or a “lower third” at the bottom of the screen covered Reeves from the waist down.
But that chyron disappeared toward the end of the report, viewers saw the reporter’s bare legs.
Many viewers thought Reeves got caught in his skivvies, but he has since clarified he was wearing a pair of workout shorts.
He said he went live on ABC after completing his morning workout and he thought the camera only framed him above the waist.
Noting his newfound online fame, Reeves tweeted “I have ARRIVED – in the most hilariously mortifying way possible.” And he added that he hopes “everyone got a much needed laugh!”
