Anything can happen on live TV. On Wednesday, one reporter learned that firsthand while covering a wildfire in Los Angeles.
KTLA-TV reporter Courtney Friel — formerly of Fox News — appeared quite surprised when a shirtless man carrying a dog asked her out during a live shot.
"Wow, you're super pretty," the unidentified man told her. "Do you want to go on a date some time."
"You're on air live right now on KTLA," Friel quickly responded.
She later turned to Twitter to poke fun at what had happened.
