Tony Hart

I grew up in the Twin Cities, graduated from Champlin Park High School and as long as I can remember I wanted to be on the radio. After graduating high school I immediately went to work in Grand Forks, ND at KZLT for a few years before moving back to Minneapolis to work with Dave Ryan at KDWB. After KDWB I did nights at WXPT in Minneapolis for just over 5 years before I decided it was time for a change, so I moved up north and the rest is history! I live in Superior with my wife Mindy, daughter Rose and dog Rawko. In my free time I enjoy playing with Rose, doing home improvement projects and watching movies. I don't like winter very much, I hate being cold, but summertime in the Northland makes it worth it...right? See ya around town and THANKS for listening!

Local Reporter Almost Gets Run Over By Car and Five Other Correspondent Accidents [VIDEOS]

Ben Higgins, the sports director for San Diego's ABC affiliate, was in Tucson, Arizona on Thursday, where he covered San Diego State University's first ever NCAA tournament victory.

But what made his report so memorable was the part when a SUV darn near ran him over as the cameras rolled. Luckily for Higgins, the vehicle stopped just in the nick of time.

Since videos of television reporters actually being struck by things are fun too, we've included a bunch those after the video of Higgins' close call.

Check them out after the jump, and feel free to laugh because none of the reporters were seriously injured (phew!).
