Reporter Completely Melts Down While Reporting on the Heat

Mike Krafcik

One of the ways a local TV news reporter can distinguish himself is through his coverage of an extreme weather event.

WATE 6 News Knoxville reporter Mike Krafcik was given that opportunity when he was assigned to the heatwave which struck the Tennessee city earlier this month.

So how did Krafcik do? Let’s just say he won’t be moving on to hurricanes. Check out his “meltdown” below.

It’s only 87 degrees at air time and the heat has already rendered poor Mike completely unintelligible. One can only imagine what could happen if he’s left out there when the temperature does hit triple digits.

Oh, well. We guess it’s back to covering feline fashion shows for Krafcik.
