Great Moments in Broadcasting: News Anchor Proposes to Girlfriend on Live TV
How’s this for romantic? A morning TV news guy in Decatur, Illinois had his girlfriend on for an interview Thursday ... or at least she thought it was for an interview. Instead, he popped the question. Alissa Groeninger believed she'd be talking about her job as a journalist for a local paper, but instead, news anchor, and boyfriend of three years Mark Rivera got down on bended knee and proposed to her. And without even bothering to look at the ring, she said 'yes'! Now that's amore.
