Line of the day

Maybe it’s the line of the year, written by a WXIA staffer teasing last night’s 11 o’clock newscast:

A NAKED KNOCKER…IS GIVING SOME METRO WOMEN…QUITE A SCARE….
ONE VICTIM SHARES HER STORY…

The line teases a straightforward Kevin Rowson story about a flasher in northeast Atlanta.  Rowson had the good sense to simply use that word:  Flasher.  Can’t say what got into the writer of this tease.  And poor Ted Hall actually read it.

Yet the real question may be:  Did the tease work?  Did it keep WXIA’s prime time viewers glued to the 11pm news?   Including the ones doubled over in laughter, disbelieving what they just heard?

Bet it did.

The video below is the package Rowson produced.  The tease has understandably disappeared.
