Huntsville, AL – News anchors are accustomed to reporting about the lives and events of other people. It is not everyday that they find themselves reporting about their own personnel life on live television. But that is just want happened Saturday night when Huntsville’s FOX54 Nine O’clock News anchor Jillian Pavlica was surprised with a marriage proposal from her boyfriend Vince during a live broadcast.
Her producer, Dana Conley, was in on the surprise. She told Jillian that there was breaking news and asked her to read the news script directly from the teleprompter.
The script read, “We’ve got breaking news to share with you tonight. FOX54 has just learned that a Huntsville news anchor is being proposed to on live TV right now!”
Jillian’s initially stunned reaction turned to emotion as her boyfriend walked onto the set, got down on one knee, presented a ring and asked for her hand in marriage.
After saying ‘yes,’ Jillian even completed the broadcast. She later tweeted “Did I just really get proposed to live on air??? Umm.. why yes.. I think I did?!?!?! Holy cow!”
