Here's some advice for anyone who works in a field where microphones are used: Always assume the microphone is on and people can hear you.

The reporter on this newscast didn't heed that advice and the results were devastating for one person.

During the newscast, one of the anchors on Los Angeles' KTLA 5, Sam Rubin, said that his wife recently asked him: "When did you become the fat one on that show?"

Ginger Chan, a reporter who was not on set, yelled out: "He's always been!"

She, however, did not realize her mic was still hot. Oh, the hilarity and awkward, uncomfortable laughter that ensued!

So yeah. The mic is hot. It's ALWAYS hot.
