Maine Television Anchor Reports Celtics/Heat Game Ends In Tie


Alright, this is just classic.

You’ve probably seen this video a couple of times on the internet and I’m still laughing but I now feel bad for this poor girl.

Meghan Torjussen, who is an anchor/reporter at WMTW in Portland, ME, announced that the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat Game 4 matchup ended in a tie…because that is what her producer told her.

This was breaking news.  No script.  And this isn’t the sports girl.  This is an anchor being told that a game ended in a tie in her earpiece.  Where was the producer to correct her and explain that the game would go into overtime?
