During NBC4’s live newscast last night, the station's Robert Kovacik got a little more than he bargained for while reporting in West Hollywood.We’re assuming Kovacik was covering street closures for the L.A. Marathon on the 11 p.m. newscast when a photobomber showed up and made a kissy face behind him. Kovacik was a good sport, later tweeting an image of the photobomber.

This isn’t the first time Kovacik has had to keep cool when his on-air reporting doesn’t go as planned—back in 2012, Kovacik reported from West L.A. while a cockroach crawled all over him, as seen below. What a pro!
