It's not easy to surprise a TV anchorperson. There are monitors, computer rundowns and hot mics everywhere -- a million different ways to ruin the moment. But the Morning Express crew (and the Van Dillen clan) managed to catch him off guard today with an early Father's day greeting!
HLN meteorologist Bob Van Dillen is reporting from Seaside Heights on the Jersey Shore today for Morning Express with Robin Meade. He's been in the area since late last week getting a first-hand look at recovery efforts after Superstorm Sandy last October.
He also took some time to visit places were his family made some fond memories when he was a kid -- and at least one place where Snookie & The Situation made some memories of their own!
