L.A. Station Disguises Anchor’s Birth Announcement as News Story

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

This morning KTTV anchor Tony McEwing read a story about a new Hollywood production.

And like many morning anchors, he didn’t have a chance to read the copy before he went live at 6:45 a.m. Wednesday.

So he was pleasantly surprised when he read the line “whenever a big new Hollywood production is on the way, we will often show you a sneak peek. Those first looks are rarely exclusive to us, but this one is. Take a look,” and a sonogram of his co-anchor Araksya Karapetyan’s second child popped up on the screen.

His reaction: “WHAT?”

The Good Day LA anchor confirmed the news that she’s expecting her second child in April. She doesn’t know the gender, but plans to find out.
