The news can be pretty depressing, but it has its hilarious moments too. Here's our list of the 10 most memorable live news gaffes and bloopers that went viral in 2013.
WARNING: Some videos contain explicit language
In Lodi, Calif., Fox 40 reporter Sabrina Rodriguez had to do a live segment while contending with a handsy baboon.
Mickey shook her hand and promptly grabbed her breast and put his arm around her. The charmer wouldn’t let go either.
Danielle Grant, a meteorologist at KREM 2 News, told viewers they could expect "slow and slutty" weather for Valentine's Day in Spokane, Wash.
"Steady! Steady wins the race," Grant quickly corrected herself.
Siobhan Riley, who works for Flint, Mich., ABC affiliate WJRT, was trying to illustrate the effect of construction on traffic conditions using a map on a telestrator.
What she ended up illustrating was something else altogether.
Meanwhile, closer to home, Global Saskatoon anchor Lisa Dutton was making small talk on air about her son’s teething when she unwittingly started making an unfortunate sequence of hilarious sexual gestures.
NBC’s Nightly News accidentally wiped New Hampshire off the map during a segment on the Lac-Megantic disaster.
"New Hampshire was lost by our graphics department," anchor Brian Williams joked. "It has since been found and put back."
KRTV in Montana broadcast a zombie emergency alert after the station was hacked back in February.
Toronto mayor Rob Ford had a lot to be embarrassed about in 2013. But remember the day he walked into a TV camera?
Oakland's KTVU Channel 2 said they had learned the names of the flight crew following the deadly Asiana plane crash in San Francisco.
Apparently no one had read them aloud before firing up the teleprompter, because the station had fallen for a rather insensitive prank.
It was Bismark, N.D., NBC anchor A.J. Clemente's first day, and thanks to this, his last.
Also from the f-bomb files comes Lindsay Nadrich of the Fox affiliate in Spokane, Wash. The look of horror on the anchor's face is priceless.
A KUTV reporter in Utah passed out on a ski hill while on live TV in December. After the video went viral, Brooke Graham explained that she tends to faint in when she gets too cold in high altitudes.
“I have laughed many times watching this video so don’t feel bad if it makes you giggle,” she wrote in a blog post.
