CBS Meteorologist Lonnie Quinn's Kids Interrupt Him on Air While Broadcasting from Home
CBS Meteorologist and weather anchor, Lonnie Quinn, had an awkward but adorable moment on television while presenting the weather forecast as he was interrupted by his daughters, Savannah and Lily.
The novel coronavirus pandemic ravaging the entire world has caused a shift in the way things are done, with many people having to work remotely to avoid further spreading of the virus.
Working from home can be a challenge, especially for workers with little children and large families, as they would have to grapple with kid noises and unwarranted disturbances.
Lonnie Quinn, CBS's weatherman, experienced one of the challenges of working from home when he was interrupted by his young daughters, Savannah and Lily, while broadcasting the weather from home.
The girls wanted to be part of the broadcast and didn't want to leave their father's sight, prompting him to carry one of them, while the other stood beside him during his broadcast.
CBS filmed the moment and shared a funny video showing the weatherman's struggles to keep his kids from interrupting the broadcast, all to no avail. In the video, CBS said that working from home could be challenging.
Today is another damp, gray day. What a perfect time for me to stumble upon this picture of my kids enjoying some Aruba beach time. Halloween does come with a rain chance but there will also be some breaks. Something else Halloween will have: winds! pic.twitter.com/nb0DPedpCg— Lonnie Quinn (@LonnieQuinnTV) October 30, 2019
The broadcast network also added that despite the odds, people still had to listen to Dad, Lonnie, and his daughters. Lonnie Quinn, did, however, handle his daughters' interruption like a pro.
The correspondent appeared on a live segment of "Good Morning America" with no pants on.
Before beginning his broadcast, he explained that his wife was occupied with a workplace Zoom meeting and that his daughters wanted to say hi to everybody. Then came Savannah and Lily, looking adorable.
Something I thought was a live TV disaster is now a @CBSNewYork promo. You, me...everyone...we are all in the same boat. If my girls gave you a much needed smile, I’m twice as happy. Cheers https://t.co/atQPhPLKxW— Lonnie Quinn (@LonnieQuinnTV) April 30, 2020
Lonnie beckoned on the girls to let him do his thing, adding that they shouldn't cry. Seeing that his efforts were not yielding the desired result, Lonnie hilariously said:
"This is going south very quickly. You gotta be quiet while Daddy's talking. Sorry, guys, we were trying here."
The weatherman later tweeted about the CBS video, saying that what he thought was a television disaster had now become a CBS New York promo. Lonnie also added that everyone was in the same boat.
Ladies and gentlemen introducing the ultimate in broadcast creativity when social isolation hast to become a priority. I give you… The weather barn! pic.twitter.com/e6hVeDH1pZ— Lonnie Quinn (@LonnieQuinnTV) April 3, 2020
In conclusion to his tweet, he told viewers that if his daughters gave them a much-needed smile, then he was twice as happy.
There was another awkward "work from home" broadcast moment involving "ABC's" Will Reeve when the correspondent appeared on a live segment of "Good Morning America" with no pants on.
Reeve wore a shirt and suit, but perhaps, felt there was no need to wear pants. He was, however, unlucky, with the camera showing a part of his waist, and revealing he had no pants on.
