KPHO Meteorologist Shows Why Electronics and Water Don’t Mix

By Kevin Eck 

This morning on Phoenix CBS affiliate KPHO, meteorologist Katie Baker made sure the station engineers will remember her name.

While doing a live interview in a pool, Baker accidentally dipped the wireless mic cube into the water, shorting it out.

When they went back to Baker later in the show, she was using a hardwire mic. She shared her teachable moment with her on camera guest, saying, “So, the first thing I learned, Paul, is that with scuba diving,  you shouldn’t put the mic into the water.”
