Those promos have since aired and over the weekend, Deadspin compiled an Orwellian-nightmare video montage of every station they could find that aired the same exact promo. Guess who made the cut!

KRGVs Frank McCaffrey Sweaty

Being a field reporter for a local news station in a small market can be shitty. It also means that producers might ask you to get creative on your reporting for the sake of ratings. In KRGV’s Frank McCaffrey’s case, it meant getting that big-ol-body of his into a steamy, hot trailer to sweat chingos to be aired and viewed by world. Keep Reading
