People were left shocked after they tuned in to watch the weather report but instead came across a 13 seconds accidentally aired porn.

KREM, a local CBS-affiliated news outlet based in Spokane, Washington aired the nude footage on Sunday during their 6 pm broadcast.

The weather update was being given by the usual meteorologist Michelle Boss when the pornographic footage suddenly appeared on the screen behind her right shoulder.

For 13 seconds, the video of what appeared to be a woman’s backside was on screen.

It’s not clear whether Boss or her co-anchor Cody Proctor were aware of the clip - but if they were, they certainly handled it like pros and didn’t even react to the unplanned video.

Daniel Walters, a local reporter for Inlander, shared a blurred clip on social media and described the incident as very weird and strange and added that he “thought it might have been a hoax when I first saw it.”

Due to the bizarre incident, KREM later apologized during their 11 pm broadcast, Adweek reported.

“Those of us here at KREM 2 want to apologize for something that happened in our 6 p.m. newscast tonight,” the station said.

“An inappropriate video aired in the first part of the show. We are diligently working to make sure something like this doesn’t happen again.”

The Spokane Police Department has since opened an investigation into the incident after getting concerned calls from viewers. 

“The Spokane Police Department Special Victims Unit responded to a local news outlet Sunday evening after a disturbing image/video appeared on the screens of viewers during the station’s weather report,” the department said in a statement.

“Around 6:30 PM on Sunday SPD began to receive calls regarding what was described as a pornographic or explicit image appearing during a television weather forecast. It was a short video segment, generally described as a small portion of the screen, showing a separate image from the newscast of what appeared to be a possibly pornographic or explicit image.

“Estimates were the image/video lasted about 10 seconds.”

Now, the Spokane Police Department’s Special Victims Unit (SVU) and Technical Assistance Response Unit (TARU) are conducting an investigation and working with the station to find out how the video appeared on a newscast and where it came from.

“At the time of this release, the investigation is ongoing and no culpability of any kind has been determined,” police said.
