KPRC 2 anchor Owen Conflenti planks on live TV


I haven't talked about planking here, but I have a reason to now. KPRC 2 morning anchor Owen Conflenti said he was talked into planking live on TV Thursday morning! I'm sure there are those out there more educated in this area than I, but is Conflenti the first anchor to plank on a news desk on live TV?

I guess Local 2 Mornings is Houston's closest version to Good Day LA?

  1. Well, I was the first to plank on television in Houston I think.

  2. Why do you give this smarmy jerk so much attention?

  3. This is the worst attempt at "planking" I've ever seen. Plus Planking is among the worst things that mankind has ever created up there with Autotune and the Tea Party.

  4. Owen is probably the first in Houston to plank on live TV, but TV personalities in L.A., KTLA to be exact, were planking on the desk.

    Let's play Match Game!!!

    While Owen Sucksplenty planks,
    KPRC's ratings tank,
    and there's more implants at Local 2,
    than in Houston's Gold Cup BLANKS.

  7. KPRC is No. 2 in the mornings ... the only daypart where they are remotely competitive. So clearly Owen does have fans out there. Me included.

  9. I agree. To quote Fred Flintstone, Conflenti is vice president of the knucklehead club. His effort to be witty and cool results in nothing but crickets chirpping.

  10. Owen Conflenti reminds me of Phillip J. Fry from Futurama for some reason.

  12. It is stupid R. Simmons. Which explains why that Troglodyte at Ch 2 was doing it.

    Who does lauren's makeup and wardrobe? And that god awful promo where shes dressed in blue, saying ridiculous feel good words, and looks 70 years old? That promo never should have made it out of the editing room.

    The Flintstone quote was "vice president of the moron section of the knucklehead club". And if he's VP, Reyna and Freeman are Asst VP's. They're the worst morning, and overall, on air "talent" in Houston. I'd replace those 3 with JP and Lana, who can do job of those 3 hacks, and do so while being better looking and far more professional.

  16. Anyone catch that train wreck Sunday night news last night with Jacquez anchoring? What are they thinking at Ch 2 these days?

  18. Sorry... but KRIV/FOX 26 was the first to plank on the air... May 17 2011... 9pm news. I think you'll need Real Player to play this FLV...
