A news anchor for a Fox affiliate in North Alabama unwittingly broke the news of her own marriage proposal this past Saturday when a "breaking news script" introducing the proposal was plugged into her teleprompter at the last minute.
Nine O'clock News weekend anchor Jillian Pavlica was reportedly informed by her producer, Dana Conley, that breaking news had just been received, and was instructed to read the teleprompter as-is.
"We've got breaking news to share with you tonight," Pavlica said at the start of Saturday's telecast. "FOX54 has just learned that a Huntsville news anchor is being proposed to on live TV right now!"
At that, Pavlica realized what was going on, and her then-boyfriend Vince came out to seal the deal.
"Did I just really get proposed to live on air???" Pavlica later tweeted. "Umm.. why yes.. I think I did?!?!?! Holy cow!"
And no one believed Fox 54's breaking news alerts ever again.
