An American news reporter has been fired after he climbed on top of classic, privately owned cars during a live news cross.

Angel Cardenas, a correspondent with KMAX TV’s, Good Morning Sacramento, was on air on Sunday at the International Auto Show when the report aired.

Someone who was watching the report posted a clip of it on Facebook saying they had “never seen such a disregard to someone else’s vehicle”.


Cardenas tells viewers in the clip “the only person out here is a media co-ordinator, (the event) doesn’t start until later in the day … no one is out here to tell me which car I can’t go in, cause some of these are off-limits, so I’m just gonna live on the wild side”.

He then proceeds to get on top of a yellow Ford Thunderbird and while laying on his side says “I feel like a kid in a candy store without the owners because you can do anything.”

The following day, the Sacramento International Auto Show Facebook posted a message saying ‘After the Producer of the Sacramento International Auto Show reached out to the General Manager of KMAX TV regarding yesterday’s astonishingly awful incident, she received a call this morning from the GM that the reporter from the Good Day Sacramento segment has been terminated immediately and the station expressed their sincerest apologies for the incident.’
