Child Interrupts NBC News Reporter On-Air


Home and work life collided for an NBC correspondent whose live shot was interrupted by her precocious son.

Pentagon reportrer Courtney Kube was describing Turkey's incursion into Syria when her 4-year-old son decided he wanted some of the spotlight.

"Breaking news in Syria didn’t line up with preschool drop-off, so he and his twin brother were with me," Kube later explained.

According to NBC, the screen quickly cut to a map of the region and Kube kept it together to complete her report.

The scene was reminiscent of another unscripted kids-on-TV moment on March 10, 2017, when the BBC was interviewing Pusan National University professor Robert Kelly about the ouster of South Korean President Park Geun-hye when his child burst into the home office. The clip was even funnier when Kelly's wife tried to wrangle the wayward girl.
