Beat reporters often use their phones to record press conferences or interviews. They’ll press record, drop them off at the podium and pick them up after the interview is completed.
Orioles beat writer Brittany Ghiroli did this after game of the Orioles doubleheader on Thursday night, except her phone rang while skipper Buck Showalter was in the middle of answering a question. Buck looked down at the phone, announced to the media that it was ringing, then immediately went back to finishing his answer. What a pro.
Buck looks down at the call at 2:24.
Ghiroli admitted on Twitter that it was her phone that rang, though anyone who saw the Michigan State Spartans iPhone case clearly already knew that.
