The most famous woman in Florida is apparently Fox Tampa reporter Charley Belcher… who is a man.
During a segment outro on Thursday morning, WTVT Good Day anchors Anne Dwyer and Russell Rhodes meant to tease video of the 84-year-old woman who just won the record-breaking Powerball jackpot, saying, “This is the most famous woman in Florida right now.”
Except instead of an elderly woman, the video revealed Belcher standing around in a curtain factory, waiting his turn to speak.
“Aw, no!” he exclaimed after everyone realized what just happened. “Did I come up when you said the most famous woman in the state of Florida?”
“Sorry!” Dwyer replied, jokingly suggesting maybe they meant Belcher’s wife. The field reporter seemed to have a good time with the mistake, pretending to tighten his collar in an expression of his manliness.
“Thanks,” he joked. “Flag that. That’ll show up somewhere else I won’t want it to show up.”
Yeah, like here!
TGIF, all. Watch below, via WTVT:
