One of a news anchor's responsibilities is to read the news, understand it, and then report it to the audience articulately. The stories that the journalist reports usually have nothing to do with his or her personal life, but that was not the case with Jillian Pavlica, an anchor for Fox 54 in Huntsville, Alabama.
During the Saturday 9 p.m. newscast, as Pavlica read from the prompter, she was instructed that there was breaking news. Pavlica read, "News 54 has just learned that a Huntsville news anchor is being proposed ... on live TV right now." Pavlica seems stunned by the situation. As she realizes what's happening, she can barely contain her emotion, especially when she sees her boyfriend.
Apparently, Pavlica's boyfriend, Vince, had the confidence to propose to her live and had gotten the news producer to play along with his plan. As Pavlica's co-anchors realized what was happening, they abruptly left the set. That's when Vince moved in and began to get down on one knee and asked for Pavlica's hand in marriage. After saying yes, and even continuing on with the rest of the broadcast, Pavlica tweeted, "Did I just really get proposed to live on air??? Um..why yes. I think I did?!?! Holy Cow!"
Now we'll just have to wait and see what happens with the wedding. Who knows? Maybe it'll happen live on the air, too.
