News Anchor Walks Off the Set During Live Broadcast

WGN -- Everyone knows that WGN anchor Micah Materre is TERRIFIED of rats, especially her co-anchor Mark Suppelsa.

But that didn't stop Mark from showing Micah a photo of a rat trap he posted to his Facebook page. He says there's a rat on the loose at WGN, and that a rat trap was placed right by the anchor desk -- just in case!

BREAKING: We're trying to catch a rat that's been seen in the WGN-TV building.

In the video player above, watch Mark and meteorologist Demetrius Ivory push Micah to the edge, so much so that she walks off the set.
