"And: More about this toxic cloud [an image of it is shown] and the direction it is traveling, in our news broadcast, tonight at 10 PM". [Info inside].

Asked by rebbel (23538 points ) February 3rd, 2012

Not with toxic clouds obviously it happens, but I see it every now and then; the news anchor reporting a subject that will be featured in a later to be aired broadcast of the news.
Cliffhangers in the news; Can you make up some funny subjects, suitable for a news-cliffhanger?!

Kent Brockman has some good news teasers and transitions:

“Coming up next: can bees think? A new study shows that…no, they cannot.”

“Coming up: can yodeling cure cancer? Of course not.”

“And the elephant that couldn’t stop laughing was put to death.”

Another Kent Brockman example:

“On the eleven o’clock news tonight: a certain kind of soft drink has been found to be lethal! We won’t tell you which one until after sports and the weather with funny Sonny Storm.”
