‘I Need You Here Now’ Sports Anchor Makes Hasty Exit After Text From Wife

By Kevin Eck 

120 Sports anchor Scott Rude‘s wife reminded him where his priorities should be while he was reading texts from her while she was in labor and he was at work.

“Getting epidural,” Rude said while reading texts from his wife while he was on-air “I need you here now.”

He then asked his co-anchors if he should just walk off set. They both agreed he should listen to his wife. So he did.
