Karen Rogers: Philly weatherwoman leaves colleague red-faced by cracking a lewd joke on air
PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA: A Philadelphia meteorologist gave her audience more than just the weather forecast when she made a lewd joke about her colleague while she was on-air on Friday, March 17. With a remote in each hand, ABC-6 Philadelphia weatherwoman Karen Rogers finished her seven-day weather prediction before making the X-rated joke.
A meteorologist often carries one remote during a weather report to change the graphics that accompany the segments. However, it was unclear why Rogers was holding two that day. She held up the remote controls in a way that suggested she was carrying two beers and made a remark about her colleague, Jessica Boyington, suggesting that she liked to "double fist." She said, "....And to another woman who liked to be double-fisted but in a different way, Jess," passing over to her co-worker during the St Patrick's Day broadcast.

'She means beer!'
"She means beer! She means beer!" Boyington quickly interjected. Behind the cameras, the rest of the newsroom could be heard giggling as Boyington attempted to get the program back on course. "Guys, she means beer! Don’t put me on YouTube! My God," Boyington exclaimed. The chuckles only got louder and louder until she started laughing and said, "I just… Yeah. We’re going to take a pause."
Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! 🍻 🍀 pic.twitter.com/P07aB020uz— Nicky💤 (@NickyZzZz1) March 17, 2023
Boyington's request seems to have been ignored as the video went viral within minutes after it was uploaded to Twitter. Almost 500,000 people saw the footage, which was undoubtedly a lot more than the number who would have tuned in for the 5am show.
What is double fisting?
"Double fisting" is a crude slang that refers to a sexual act. However, it also refers to the practice of holding two alcoholic beverages at once and drinking them simultaneously, which was what the live broadcast reporter was apparently going for. Being a live TV reporter or anchor is terrifying for this reason.
