No arachnophobia: News reader doesn't flinch as spider crawls on her arm (VIDEO)

No arachnophobia: News reader doesn't flinch as spider crawls on her arm (VIDEO)
A newsreader on a local Texas TV channel has been praised for her professionalism after continuing her broadcast unabated while a spider creeped down her arm.

Broadcaster Shannon Murray was delivering a segment on Dallas Fort Worth station Fox 4’s “Good Day” programme when she was interrupted by a most unwelcome gate crasher.

Undeterred, the presenter continued her report despite the presence of a spider, which crawled down her arm while she was live on air.

Murray clearly doesn’t suffer from arachnophobia and was praised for not flinching as the eight-legged guest made its way down her arm.

The anchor even had some kind words for the spider, thanking it for giving her social media following a boost.
