TORONTO – King, a one-year-old American bulldog mix, made his television debut a few minutes early at a Miami TV station when he interrupted a weather report catching meteorologist Ryan Phillips off-guard.
Ryan Phillips, who works for NBC affiliate WTVJ, was working on a post-Thanksgiving weather segment when the dog passed in front of his desk.
“Hey King. How are you?” said Phillips, before King leaped onto the weather desk.
“Whoa! Live TV,” said Phillips. “How are you buddy? It’s not your turn yet. You have to wait one more segment. Okay, just let me do the weather. You’re stoked. So are we. All right, let’s just go to the map so we can get him off of here in a graceful fashion.”
As the weather maps appeared behind Philips the laughs continued as the excited dog tried to lick the reporter.
WTVJ is working with a local community organization to help find King a home.
Canines seem to have a knack for interrupting weather segments. The video of King is similar to the story of Ripple, a one-year-old Shepherd-Mastiff cross, who became an Internet sensation after a rambunctious segment with Global’s Mike Sobel.

Ripple, who was also up for adoption at the time, found a home with a couple from Devon, Alberta less than a week after the video aired.
