Grumpy Old Men Part 3

While visiting the page of sports talk radio host Jamie Samuelsen at, I found this funny clip. It's from a from a few years ago and involves an on-air dust up between a news anchor and a reporter. These old cats don't like each other and have no problems showing it. The woman in the bathrobe (who reminds me of what Amy Winehouse might look like when she's not all made up) is really enjoying this.

She totally could be Amy Winehouse sans beehive, overuse of an eyeliner and track marks!!

This is funny, but sooooooo unprofessional. I can't even imagine the amount of dislike between them to get into something like that on purpose and on the air.

Candy Minx said...

Holy...that is something yuu rarely se...I loved it. Yeah, you can tell there is a lot of history there...meanwhile that guy was a lousy interviewer!

Tasina said...

That's so funny. Wow. There must be some amazing backstory behind that.

Holly Smith said...

Amy Winehouse or Sarah Silverman...and Jim's a jerk!
Great find!

I'm surprised. I recognize the reporter and the anchorman, but I'm surprised that the Post didn't harp on the story for a week. This is right up their alley.

Meanwhile, I never heard of this incident.

Whoa, what the hell?? How unprofessional was that? You can tell there are some unresolved issues and some deep seated resentments between these two guys. However they shouldn't air their dirty laundry in public.

The Rock Chick: That's a great line what you said in reference to Amy's beehive, eyeliner, and track marks. Damn, I wish I had said it, lol.

Candy: This clip is one of the main reasons I love live TV.

Tasina: I wouldn't be surprised if those two got into it even further back at the studio.

Holly: Yes, Jim was in jerk mode. As Candy said, the reporter wasn't the greatest interviewer. Still, Jim didn't have to call him out like that.

After I posted this, I too was thinking this lady was a Sarah Silverman lookalike. I seem to remember that Sarah has impersonated Amy in the past.

X. Dell: This on-air incident does seem tailor-made for the Post.

Pjazzy: I'll bet that the station manager hauled both of their asses in his/her office after this incident. As funny and entertaining as this type of stuff is for us, on-air professionals should be just that... professional.
