"I knew it was cool, but it's a whole new level," the co-host at the studio commented on Williams' live reporting.
Victor Williams shared the video on his Twitter and wrote, “Free skateboarding lessons are happening at a new skatepark in Detroit. Of course I had to show the kids something on @Local4News. In all seriousness - as a child, I would have killed for a new park and mentors in the skateboarding community. Glad to see it’s happening in Detroit…”
Another prominent journalist Mallory Schnell said, “Alright, reporters. The bar for live shots has been significantly raised.”
Twitterati Héctor BOOctavio said, “His smile at the end is filling me with so much joy.”
