A KREM-TV weather report in Spokane, Washington, shocked viewers when a graphic porn video played behind the anchorwoman on the air. Now police are investigating.

Heavy has reached out to KREM to get additional information. According to the Spokesman-Review, the pornographic video appeared on air behind an anchorperson who was giving a weather forecast on the 6 p.m. news on Sunday, October 17, 2021.

A Spokane Police Department news release said the Spokane Police Department Special Victims Unit “responded to a local news outlet Sunday evening after a disturbing image/video appeared on the screens of viewers during the station’s weather report.”

Here’s what you need to know:


The Porn Video Played for About 10 Seconds

It’s not yet clear whether the video was criminal.

“Around 6:30 PM on Sunday SPD began to receive calls regarding what was described as a pornographic or explicit image appearing during a television weather forecast,” police wrote in the news release. “It was a short video segment, generally described as a small portion of the screen, showing a separate image from the newscast of what appeared to be a possibly pornographic or explicit image. Estimates were the image / video lasted about 10 seconds.”

The Spokane Police Department’s Special Victims Unit (SVU) and Technical Assistance Response Unit (TARU) “responded to the local station to conduct an investigation as to how the image appeared and where it came from. The stations personnel are cooperating fully with SPD in the attempt to determine what happened,” the news release continued. “The incident generated numerous calls from concerned citizens in the city and county. At the time of this release, the investigation is ongoing and no culpability of any kind has been determined.”

TV Spy reported that the video “appeared to show a woman’s backside” and aired for “about 13 seconds.” It appeared on a video monitor behind meteorologist Michelle Boss as she gave a weather report. Heavy has reviewed the video — it does appear to show a female’s naked backside.


The Station Apologized for an ‘Inappropriate Video’

According to TV Spy, the station apologized to viewers during the 11 p.m. newscast that same night. “Those of us here at KREM 2 want to apologize for something that happened in our 6 p.m. newscast tonight,” the station said, according to TV Spy. “An inappropriate video aired in the first part of the show. We are diligently working to make sure something like this doesn’t happen again.’”

The Spokesman-Review reported that the station faces the possibility of large fines from the Federal Communications Commission due to bans on explicit on-air content between the hours of 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.

People shared the graphic video on Twitter. “You may want to take a peek at the weather forecast…THEY SHOWED ACTUAL PORN,” a person who tweeted it wrote.

KATU News reporter Nikki Torres tweeted, “I- I’m. I’m still shocked after this. Also, I really need to start looking at the monitors behind me before I do weather.”

Daniel Walters, a reporter for the Inlander newspaper in Spokane, tweeted, “It’s a very strange clip — so strange I thought it might have been a hoax when I first saw it. Nobody on screen seems to react, and it takes shockingly long before they cut away.”
