A reader has nominated Reporter Mike Vogel for a GUARDIAN ” TV Dope Reporter Award.”
Vogel has been in, out, and back in the news game and probably didn’t even think about winning a GUARDIAN dope award when he touched his tongue to a metal pole at temperatures well below freezing on camera. He was reporting on the “rescue” of a 10-year-old boy who did the did deed after a “tripple dog dare” in the Christmas movie a few years back.
As Vogel said in his news report, “Don’t try this at home.” Congratulations Mike!
This award was initiated when we caught a news girl wearing a skirt and standing in flood water telling viewers the water was up to her knees.
Other winning reports include the Channel 7 reporter “reporting live” from a forest fire telling viewers the flames had died down on the ridge behind her, “but if we are lucky it will start up again before the newscast ends,” and a reporter doing a rooftop weather segment during a thunderstorm.
