In Chicago, WLS has a glass window that faces downtown. That was fine until a minivan crashed through the pane and onto the air.

STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with an update on traffic in Chicago.

Television station WLS has a glass window studio along a Chicago Street. The anchorman was delivering the news when a minivan crashed through a window. Listen.

Mr. RAVI BAICHWAL (Anchorman, WLS-TV): Michelle Gallardo joining us now live from the scene of one fire tonight where two people were injured, Michelle, and the weather made the rescue work all that much moreā€¦

(Soundbite of crashing)

Mr. BAICHWAL: Oh.

INSKEEP: Nobody was injured, and just think of all the things the anchor could've said on the air.

It's MORNING EDITION.

Mr. BAICHWAL: Ho, ho, ho.
