It seems a historical record of sorts is being created of what appears to be the recent trend of stations sending their anchors out into the freezing cold to report the news from behind desks made of ice.
We started our journey this year with Cleveland NBC affiliate WKYC.

Atlanta’s NBC affiliate WXIA debuted theirs at the end of January, no doubt previewing what the area would look like in February.
KSTP the Minneapolis ABC affiliate also built a castle.
