Television news can be stressful and exhausting, especially considering its fluid nature and the unpredictable hours that some reporters are asked to appear on-air. These factors become increasingly problematic when there's a noteworthy event going on -- for instance: Super Tuesday.
This morning, FOX News correspondent Doug Luzader fell victim to a bout of tiredness during a scheduled appearance on Austin, Texas' KTBC. When anchor Joe Bickett attempted to toss over to Luzader, who was appearing via satellite from Washington, D.C., the correspondent was fast asleep.
Watch the awkward incident, below:
As TVSpy noted, Luzader may have been unable to hear Bickett's attempts to speak with him, as he was unresponsive in the split-screen shots above. An hour after the incident, the two connected and discussed GOP primary results without incident.
Luzader shouldn't be embarrassed, though. He's not the first individual to be caught sleeping on the job. Yesterday, The Blaze reported about Newt Gingrich's on-air nap while addressing the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) audience.
