Reporter has live TV meltdown over Super Bowl result

There’s no cheering allowed in the press box.

The TV studio? A different story, evidently.

Sports anchor for KOTV 6 in Tulsa, Oklahoma Harold Kuntz was on air Sunday night, working while his beloved Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl.

When his colleague delivered the news during the broadcast, he simply couldn't contain his emotions.

Kuntz screamed the result as he found out, breaking down and appearing to shed a few tears.

Sports media professionals tend to see their careers spawn from a childhood love of sports as either an athlete, a fan or both.

That team fandom often fades over the years of covering games.

For Kuntz, this is clearly not the case.

Enjoy the win, Harold.
