Sh*t Crazy Newsroom Callers Say

by - January 16, 2016

It's been a hot minute since I did one of these posts. That's because our new web master really likes to answer the phone! And he's so good at it, too. But even so, crazy calls still make it through to other people.

One day this past week I was in my news director's office when I heard what sounded like my desk phone ringing. So I transferred it to his phone. Big mistake.

Turns out, it wasn't my phone that had been ringing but one of my coworker's. And it wasn't a viewer calling. Instead, I had the pleasure of answering a telemarketer trying to sell some kind of male enhancement product.

Yes, you read that correctly.

A telemarketer called one of my coworkers trying to sell a male enhancement product.

And I answered it in my news director's office.


This isn't a phone call but in light of this post, I think it's worth sharing. We'll file this one under weird work experiences.

The day after the phone call, a coworker and I were looking up examples of some award entries when one of the links we clicked on opened and lo and behold there was an advertisement for porn at the top of the page. It was a video ad at that.

Two for two this week.

Happy weekend!
