Big Story Happens to Baltimore TV Station, Which Isn’t Able to Cover It

The “biggest story in Baltimore” on Tuesday took place inside a TV station in the city, which found itself unable to cover the story because it had been evacuated after a man rammed a truck through the lobby, CNN reports.

The station’s reporters were unable to get on air after they were evacuated at 11:45 a.m. because a man drove a truck through the lobby and declared that he was God. Police started a search of the building, with the unidentified man finally captured around 4:30 p.m.

“All the while, WMAR journalists could relay information only via Twitter and the station's website. By mid-afternoon, a makeshift newsroom had been set up about a mile north of the station — but the reporters still had no way to broadcast,” the story notes.

While the station was evacuated, it broadcast taped shows such as “The People’s Court,” while its rivals covered the breaking news story, the piece adds.
