Local News Blooper: Intern Coffee Mishap Becomes Running Joke (VIDEO)

KTLA 5's live local morning show turned a microphone mishap into a running joke this week after audio of an anchor asking their new intern Irene for a cup of coffee accidentally played over the beginning of a report on a cell phone ban.

Instead of just blushing or ignoring the situation altogether, the news team decided to turn "Irene, could I have some coffee?" into a running gag that made its way through the entire studio that morning.

We're sure Irene will get more live news experience over the course of the semester, but as far as first days go, she's off to a pretty good start.
