NBC reporter laughs off young son's interruption during live shot

The Hill 2 months ago

NBC News correspondent Courtney Kube was interrupted by her young son during a live report from the network's Washington, D.C. bureau on Wednesday, but was able to laugh off the situation to finish her report.

"Excuse me, my kids are here. Live television," an amused Kube said on MSNBC after her young son entered the shot and began playing with his mother.

Kube, who has been with NBC News since 2001 and covers national security and the Pentagon, proceeded to continue her report on Turkish air strikes in northern Syria without further interruption.

The scene is reminiscent of a live BBC interview during which the young children of Robert E. Kelly, a political science professor in South Korea, entered his home office.  His wife is seen in the background running into the room after the two children while Kelly continues to speak.

The  interview went on to be the most viewed video of 2017, generating more than 32 million views on the BBC's YouTube page alone. It was also played for days on news programs across the world.

"There was nothing I could do," Kelly said in a subsequent interview. "I was just hoping you guys [BBC producers] might cut it on your end. I was maintaining a straight face, trying to get through it."
