Time to hang it up.

You’ve really got to hand it to local news anchors. They stand up in front of a camera on a nightly basis, report whatever shows up on the teleprompter, and look fantastic while doing it. 

Well, that’s assuming they remember to take the hanger out of their clothing, which is something one reporter didn’t manage to accomplish before hopping on live television.

Reporting for a local Fox affiliate, one unnamed anchorman seems to have a little trouble with his outfit, apologizing as he swipes at the back of his neck. A moment later, he produces a metal hanger from his jacket, tossing it on the table and causing his fellow newscasters to break into fits of laughter.

He does his best to explain himself to his colleagues and the audience, but eventually resigns himself to his fate. “I thought it was just the tight button,” he pleads as laughs roll through the studio, ending his explanation with “I… nevermind.”
