It also featured a crowd The Morning Call described as “beer-swilling.” And, on Saturday night, a Musikfest patron — who, to be fair, we don’t know the inebriation status of — interrupted the live shot of Service Electric TV2’s Mike Zambelli. He appeared to curse. As you can see in the video above, Zambelli just went and punched him. Holy crap. Channel 69 News is no longer my favorite suburban Philadelphia newscast.
“He startled me, so I reacted,” Zambelli told The Morning Call. “He ran off … It’s not a big deal.” Bethlehem police Chief Mark Diluzio called the incident “hilarious.”
It’s not a big deal, except that Zambelli is now the best suburban sports anchor ever! If all TV reporters started punching people who interrupted their live shots, the world would be a more fun place.
