News anchor delivers breaking news of her friend’s death


A personal tragedy can strike at any time, but people are usually not on live TV when they receive the news.

CtiTV news anchor Erich Shih was found dead in his home in Taipei on Thursday of a suspected suicide, but his friend and colleague Lee Chingyu at NextTV News apparently did not know about his death until she received the breaking news bulletin on her teleprompter.

Her professionalism is admirable. She manages to keep it together, but it is still heartbreaking to watch.
