A negative nickname given to a journalist who specializes in the television broadcast medium. Often times little more than a pretty face that can read a teleprompter. A broadcast jockey is void of independent thought and lacks common sense.
Broadcast Jockey Tracy Butler, from Chicago's ABC 7 news team, tested out a new Vespa motor scooter on live tv without actually knowing how to ride a scooter.
"See ya Jose and Judy, I'm outta here."
She wiped out on State Street 5 seconds later.
"I'm fine...hahahaha. Just goes to show you live tv can be interesting."
Ron Burgundy: Thanks for watching Channel 4 News. You stay classy, San Diego. I'm Ron Burgundy?
Ed Harken: Damn it, who typed a question mark on the teleprompter? For the last time, anything you type, Burgundy will read!
