Virginia Reporter’s Cat-Like Reflexes Take the Internet

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

WVIR reporter Andrew Webb showed off his cat-like reflexes, grabbing a falling light while taping a sign-off, and posted the result to Twitter.

“This is definitely on the list of the top 3 most athletic things I’ve ever done and I don’t think it’s number 2 or 3,” the Charlottesville, Va. reporter wrote.

Here’s how it happened: Webb was doing his sig-out when a gentle wind came through.


“In Charlottesville, Andrew Webb, NBC 29 News,” he said. Then, his light tipped over and Webb caught it without reacting.

His smooth catch has received a ton of reaction on social media. The video has over 75,000 views.
