Are On-Air Proposals All the Rage?

Texas news anchor Alexa Williams had quite the evening newscast. At the end of the show, HLN reports she was given a script to read that said: 'A woman is about to get the surprise of her life, and eventually a new last name.' ​

Are on-air proposals all the rage?

KWES continued: "That's when her fiance, Wayne, walked in with a bunch of roses and a surprise proposal."

"Oh my god."

Obviously, KWES's Williams said yes -- but we're learning that some people aren't huge fans of public proposals, including HLN's own Robin Meade.

"And the cynics among us, who are not real fans of, how can I say, public marriage proposals, go, 'That's not breaking news!'"

Ouch. Well, public marriage proposals, at least of the news-casting kind, seem to be hot trend right now.

Just last month, a Canadian reporter was investigating what she thought was a mystery of pink hearts popping up around her city, when in reality, it was her own proposal.

And last year, WZDX's Jillian Pavlica was popped the question during a "breaking news" segment.

"FOX54 has just learned that a Huntsville news anchor is being proposed on live TV."

​So what's with the public proposal fad? An article from last year's Washington Post reports it might be the social media pressure to impress your friends and loved ones with a big "I Do."

While not everyone is proposing the same way Kanye West did, with a 50 piece orchestra and a JumboTron, maybe there's something to be said for going all out.

Even Newsy's own Cliff Judy couldn't help himself to getting the hand of his now-wife Megan:

"What are you doing here?"
"Will you be my wife?"

Yes, it's just as you suspected: journalists are big cheeseballs for true love, too.
