2020 in overview: 10 glitches and humorous moments from International Information Morning Calgary – Calgary


What you may not know when watching Global News Morning Calgary is how many people it takes to get the show on.

Each day, a group of hardworking and dedicated staff gathers early in the morning to write, prepare, and produce a four-hour newscast anchored by Dallas Flexhaug with traffic reports from Leslie Horton, weather forecast from meteorologist Jordan Witzel, and live news from Sarah Offin and Bindu Suri.

Despite the best efforts of everyone involved, things can still go wrong and breakdowns occur during the live broadcast.

Towards the end of 2020, we thought it might be fun looking back at some of the silliest and most memorable mishaps and moments of the morning show that took place on Global News Morning Calgary this year.

Jordan Witzel creates ‘Studio Buff’ while he is alone in Studio B.

When COVID-19 cases began to rise in the province in late March, Jordan was forced to move from the studio that aired the morning show (Studio A) to a separate studio across the hall (Studio B) to help social distancing.

It’s safe to say that Jordan wasn’t particularly good at dealing with loneliness.

He started building his own gym.
