TV Anchor Apologizes for Drag Race
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
Producers of the movie "Anchorman" may be disappointed they didn't think to include this scene. Two local TV trucks turned up at a drag race in El Paso. One was from the CBS affiliate, the other from the ABC station. Fans encouraged them to engage in a drag race of their own, and they did. Two photographers raced against an anchorman. The anchor has apologized but will not be fired for what's described as an impromptu decision.
It's MORNING EDITION.
