N.Y. Reporter Stops Walk Through With Forearm

By Kevin Eck 

WABC reporter Darla Miles showed off her reflexes when she made sure a man didn’t walk though her live shot earlier this week.

Miles, who has worked at the New York ABC-owned station since 2009, barely skipped a beat when she stuck out her arm to prevent a man from walking in front of her while she was doing a live report at the Port Authority Bus Terminal.

Anchor Bill Ritter complimented her on Twitter, saying, “The job of reporters is to get the story, and, no matter what is happening that would distract most people, keep focused. @DarlaMiles7 did that perfectly yesterday during that hours-long commuter nightmare.”
