A local news reporter from NBC affiliate WSAV-3 in Georgia who was assaulted on live television Saturday morning as she reported on the race at the Savannah Bridge Run route, is now speaking out over the slap and condemning the assailant’s grotesque actions.
While dressed in a neon-yellow shirt and microphone in hand, field reporter Alex Bozarjian stood alongside the route as runners passed her by with many whooping and cheering in the background of her shot when one participant sporting sunglasses and a long-sleeve blue shirt smacked her bottom as he ran past her.
In video that has since gone viral of the assault and enraged countless users online, Bozarjian’s expression noticeable changes from enthusiastic to one of pure stun. Shocked with her face dropping, the reporter begins stuttering over her words, then quickly recovering to continue her report.
