Julie Tremmel, reporter for Providence, RI, NBC affiliate WJAR has found another way to draw our attention.

Friday night, while reporting on local auditions for┬áthe NBC show America’s Got Talent, Tremmel attempted to walk on her hands in her stand up and ended up in a back bend.

In July Tremmel showed viewers what to do in case they came into contact with a bear.

GoLocalProv reported Tremmel’s colleague, investigative reporter Jim Taricani, said at the time the report was a “smudge” on the station’s reputation and added, “…some tv reporters like to draw attention to themselves…its an insult to most of us trying to be professional.”
