Based on the video, it seems like there was an issue that prevented reporter Frank Carpano from going on-air for his initial report following Providence’s win over Creighton at the Big East tournament, so the host tried to kick it back to him again. Even though Carpano was giving a thumbs up, he apparently could not hear his cue, and therefore did not realize he was on air. He kept futzing with his earpiece the entire time.
The pinnacle was when Carpano, not realizing he was on live TV, launched himself at the camera with the thumbs up and said, “I gave you a thumbs up!”
Dude, if you couldn’t hear, then why did you give a thumbs up?
