Louisville Reporter Flustered by Unexpected Kiss

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

WAVE reporter Sara Rivest was kissed during a live hit last week—and she’s understandably upset about the “inappropriate” behavior.

During a live hit about the Kentucky Bourbon and Beyond festival, you see a man walking behind Rivest’s live shot. At first, it looks like he just wants a couple seconds of fame. But a few seconds later, the man came up for a kiss.

“Wow, that was inappropriate,” she said in reaction to the unsolicited smooch, then quickly tossed to her story.


“Hey mister, here’s your 3 seconds of fame. How about you not touch me? Thanks,” she posted on Twitter.
