Days after a South Dakota news anchor became the Internet’s latest star, she tells Trending Now that she has no regrets about her off-the-cuff on-air rant.
KSFY anchor Nancy Naeve’s rise to YouTube celebrity began on Sunday night. Her co-worker at the ABC affiliate in Sioux Falls, meteorologist Shawn Cable, broke in to regularly scheduled programming to report a confirmed tornado in the area. The tornado touched down in Hospers, Iowa, which is about 70 miles from Sioux Falls.
Viewers, however, were outraged and took to the phone and Facebook to complain about Cable interrupting the season finale of “Once Upon A Time.”
On Monday morning on the air, Cable showed footage of the tornado and then apologized for interrupting a TV show the night before. Next to him was Naeve, who fiercely rose to his defense.
“No show is as important as someone’s life,” Naeve states. “But I tell you what. If it was your home and your neighbors, you would feel differently. So please don’t do that. That’s not nice.”
