MSNBC news correspondent Courtney Kube showed she is a master at multitasking Wednesday morning after her young son wandered on set during a live segment.
Kube, who covers national security and the Pentagon, was discussing Turkish airstrikes over northern Syria when the boy came up to her wanting attention.
“Excuse me, my kids are here.” Kube said while grinning during the segment. “Live television!”
Despite being a little distracted for a second, Kube managed to explain the Syria situation in great detail.
Kube’s colleagues were impressed by how she handled the situtation.

So were audience members.
Best part of the programming so far this morning. Although she might have been surprised & stressed abt her surprise on-camera guest, I loved the way she looked at her child with a big smile and lots of love. That's a mom with her priorities straight. #MSNBCKids #KidsMakeItBetter— LindaC (@LDCDee) October 9, 2019
Kudos to you, @ckubeNBC. Taking your kids to work is a normal thing for working moms, and all working moms should do it with the attitude that it's perfectly okay. Don't apologize. Just do it. #NoApologies for being a #WorkingMom!— kersti (@FeistyOldHag) October 9, 2019
Absolutely wonderful moment during a very serious report. ????— TJ Marcum (@TJMagain) October 9, 2019
The impending invasion by turkey is a human tragedy. But I loved seeing a child in the newsroom, maybe more children in the newsroom, boardroom and war room would change our lives for the better.— Caren Marie Michel (@CarenMichelArt) October 9, 2019
