That can't be real. He's not the only one doing a terrible job - the other two speak like they're reading verbatim from a script.

It's fairly evident. Unless it was a university station, or maybe some kind of cable access channel, the producers would have cut out very early during the guy's struggle. That, plus the fact he's apparently got no broadcast experience (neither do the others).

In any case, the clip of the guy vomiting during a news broadcast is much funnier.

It's prove. If it isn't fake, some station general manager needs to be fired first, because all three of them are doing a horrible job.

I would be very interested to know the kind of ratings that station receives. With a performance like that I could do the weather.

It's Ohio University's television station, produced by students.

Wow, wow, where's the love for the poor struggling weatherman wdlove? Not only did the weatherman get no love, he got an insult instead

Though it's good to see that you do have a sense of human after all
