Not even a guy on cross country skis who cruises right into the middle of her broadcast.

Sawyer, ever the velvet smooth broadcaster, never misses a beat–inviting the speechless man to continue on his way, and even directing him through ABC’s remote location, past Sam Champion and the crew, and on his way. Skis, of course, being a perfectly valid mode of transportation in the park after the nonstop winter storms blew away an 86 year old record–19 inches of snow was dumped in Central Park, marking the snowiest January in New York’s history
