Video: Anchor cracks up when traffic reporter’s live shot is him ordering breakfast at a drive-thru

A Baltimore traffic reporter was caught in a most unusual situation on live TV. Ordering a fish sandwich at McDonalds.

Fox 45’s Candace Dold cut to “Traffic Jam Jimmy,” real name Jimmy Uhrin, for a report on the traffic situation but what she got was a report on the breakfast situation.

“Hey, is it too early to get a fish sandwich?” he asked a McDonald’s Drive-Thru attendant when the feed cut to him.

Eventually Uhrin realized he was on live TV.

“Don’t tell the boss I did this,” he said sarcastically to Dold who was in tears of laughter.

“I’m ecstatic that his personality has translated on air as Traffic Jam Jimmy. He also has a big heart and truly cares about the community. In the video his beard was dyed orange to raise awareness for Multiple Sclerosis week,” Fox 45 general manager Bill Fanshawe wrote in an email to the Baltimore Sun. “He can also make me a little nervous at times!”

He added that the gaffe was legitimate and not intended to be a promotion for McDonald’s.

“Wish we were that clever to intentionally pull off something so entertaining!” he wrote.
