News anchor proposes live on TV

world Updated: Apr 24, 2009 17:34 IST

A television anchorwoman had the surprise of her life when her boyfriend interrupted a live broadcast to propose on air.
Courtney Collins looked stunned as Pete Thompson, also a news reporter, walked onto the set at KARK 4 News and said he had some "breaking news".

"I have a few things I have to say to her, so you're welcome to join us here," Mr Thompson says into the camera.

A visibly shocked Ms Collins can be heard repeatedly muttering "oh my goodness" as it dawns on her what is about to happen.

"Courtney, I just want to tell you how much I love you," Mr Thompson says in the broadcast, which has been posted on YouTube.

"You have taught me something - that love is about building each other up. And I tell you, I think that's something I want to do for the rest of my life."

A colleague hands Mr Thompson a ring, and he proposes on bended knee.
