This reporter really went the extra mile in the name of her job, but it looks like it massively backfired…
You should really spare a thought for Alexandra Koehn. She works as a reporter at U.S news station WTVF News Channel 5 and braved the elements while reporting on the snow storms that have battered Tennessee and parts of Southern Kentucky.
But during the short clip her nose started to stream a fair bit of snot, but she carried on like a boss and managed to finish the news segment.
However, that wasn’t the last she’d hear of it and the video has now gone viral. She took to Twitter to address the negative attention she’s had.
People are cruel. I guess that's a part of the biz. I did 8 liveshots in a snow storm, and was working really hard!!!

To be fair, it looks like her followers have her back…
@NC5_AKoehn you were a champ, but it's the internet. Keep up the good work.Advertisement

@NC5_AKoehn Lets see all those cruel people get out there in the storm and do that job. They wouldn't last 2 seconds.

@NC5_AKoehn Keep your head up. You've always been extremely professional. Something positive will come from this unwanted attention.

The East Coast of American has experienced horrendous blizzards which have shut down road, rail and airline travel, with at least 10 states declaring a state of emergency.
Tennessee is suffering from extreme conditions from the Mid-Atlantic storm, dubbed ‘Snowmaggedon’.
Fair play to her for persevering…
