VIDEO News reporter reads her own engagement proposal off teleprompter

Camila Orti Channel 8 Lincoln

It was a news day one Nebraska journalist won’t soon forget!

Camila Orti, a reporter at Lincoln’s ABC 8 News, thought she was doing a typical studio run-through. Then an interesting bit of script came on the screen…

“And a big surprise today for one Channel 8 Eyewitness News reporter when her long-time boyfriend showed up to propose to her,” she said as boyfriend Johnny Rutford interrupted and got down on one knee.

Clearly stunned, Camila said “yes” — and the video earned popularity on the nightly news.
