Reporter Faceplants During Live News Broadcast from Minnesota Skating Rink (Video + GIF)

reporter faceplants on ice during live broadcast

It’s been well documented that being a sports sideline reporter can put you in a lot of dangerous situations. Just ask Pam Oliver or Kelly Nash.

Don’t tell that to reporter M.A. Rosko, though. Technically, she’s not a sports reporter. She’s just a regular reporter who, as part of her gig on the morning show for Twin Cities Fox affiliate KMSP-TV, has to do pretty much whatever they ask of her. And yesterday, they asked her to go on down to the John Rose Skating Oval in Roseville, Minnesota, to cover the opening day of skating season.

Does M.A. know how to skate, you ask? Yes she does. However, she doesn’t know how to skate in gale force winds. And, well, I think you know how the segment turned out.

Here’s the video:

And here’s the GIF, so you can watch her poor face hit the cold hard ice over and over and over again, because you’re weird like that:

I hope her producer sent her a bottle of wine and gave Rosko the morning off today. You’ve got to hand it to her, though. She handled it like a pro.
