Newscaster Fired After Damaging Cars By Climbing On Them On Live TV
Gearhead rule #1: respect other people’s vehicles. Even if you’re not a gearhead, this should be common sense.
A CBS 13 Sacramento newscaster has been fired after damaging vehicles at an auto show while broadcasting on live television.
The show began highlighting the Sacramento International Auto Show when Angel Cardenas decided to pose on the bodies of multiple show vehicles.
“No-one is out here to tell me which car I can’t go in because some of these are off-limits. So I’m going to live on the wild side, tell me what you think about this pose Tina?” said Cardenas, climbing atop a Ford Thunderbird.
The Thunderbird was one of many vehicles that the Sacramento Classic Thunderbird Club loaned for the auto show. But he didn’t stop there. Cardenas proceeded to climb into a pink Thunderbird, dinging the door of the car next to it.
“I feel like a kid in a candy store without the owners because you can do anything,” Cardenas said.
The story doesn’t end before one more offense by Cardenas is caught. He can be seen ducking under the ropes around a 2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid and posing on top of the vehicle, before being reprimanded by staff.
CBS Sacramento has removed the story however, the public and auto show staff are not happy. And rightfully so.
