I don't know why I've got all this stuck in my head today, but here's another bit of goofiness from the Syracuse NBC affiliate's morning news program. You know how most metropolitan areas, if not all of them, will include on their morning news a traffic segment so they can relate where trouble spots are on the local highways and such? Very useful, yes.

What's weird about this one is that, for reasons passing understanding, the guy who does the traffic reports here broadcasts them from his office. He's actually sitting at his paper-covered desk, looking into the camera and talking about the volume in I-690 and such. Is the newsdesk too small to accomodate this guy for his thirty seconds or so of on-air time?
