Saturday night at our sister station, WZDX, in Huntsville, Ala., weekend anchor Jillian Pavlica was surprised with a ring from her boyfriend Vince on the Fox 54 Nine O'Clock News.
Her producer, Dana Conley, simply told her before the segment there was breaking news. Dana told Jillian she wrote the script and put it in the TelePrompTer and instructed her to just read what was in there.
The "breaking news" script read, "We've got breaking news to share with you tonight. Fox 54 has just learned that a Huntsville news anchor is being proposed to on live TV right now!"
Jillian made it to "proposed" and then figured it out. Out came Vince, Jillian's boyfriend (now fiance). He got on one knee and popped the question.
Jillian said yes, and now her story is making national headlines.
