World's Most Unique Newscast Advertising Slick Roads, A "Frozen" Parody

Pity the poor television newscaster by the time you get toward the end of February in what has been a tough winter.
Reporter Bob Herzog belts out his "Frozen" parody
about icy roads. It's certainly a sight to behold.  

For so many days, these news anchors have gotten on the air to tell you the roads are icy and snowy and dangerous.

How many different ways can you say this day after day and remain engaging, not boring?  Will people just tune you out?

One reporter is bravely (I think) trying to prevent us from tuning out.

Bob Herzog, an anchor and reporter for television station WKRC in Cincinnati,  decided to do quick a performance on air with his song "Just Don't Go," a parody of the Idina Menzel song "Let It Go" from the Disney movie "Frozen."

Hmm, I wonder if this silliness is related to the comedy of the old radio station comedy "WKRP in Cincinnati. Even the call letters of the real and fictional stations are similar.

Anyway, Herzog is a bit of a strange one, doing traffic reports of sorts by performing parody renditions of George Michael's "Faith,"  and something called "Traffic Man" done to Elton John's "Rocket Man"

When he can't come up with a good report, he just does  really odd lip syncing to the likes of "Gangnam Style,"  and  Carly Rae Jepson's "Call Me Maybe"

But he really hit his stride, of sorts, when he did this report on the nationwide scourge of dangerous, icy roads this winter with this parody from "Frozen":
