Reporter blasted with snow from snow plow while LIVE on air
WOODSTOWN, N.J. (WITI) — FOX6’s News partners at FOX29 in Philadelphia are sharing video in which their reporter, Steve Keeley experienced a bit of a mishap while covering a snowstorm.
Keeley spent Monday morning, March 3rd in New Jersey covering the snowstorm — and was blasted with snow from a plow while reporting LIVE on the air from the side of a road.
FOX29 says this is the 15th snowstorm Keeley has reported on this season — and say CLEARLY he is a pro — because he didn’t miss a beat despite being pummeled with snow!
Later Monday morning, Keeley reflected on the incident, saying he was 20 feet from the road and that shows how far plows can throw snow when traveling at high speeds.
Keeley also had some fun with the incident, telling “Good Day Philadelphia:” “You know I’ve spent my whole time here, ever since the invention of YouTube, I have done everything I could to avoid being a YouTube star, and I think that hit will be on YouTube.”
FOX29 reports someone claiming to be the plow driver actually called the station on Monday morning to say he was sorry.
Following the incident, Keeley took to his Twitter page, where he posted the following:
