MSNBC ‘recreates’ gator habitat on set
Ron Magill, the communications director of the Miami-Dade Zoological Park, joined Diaz-Balart in his Miami studio with a much smaller alligator he brought along.
During the segment the video walls on the small set that normally show a Miami cityscape were used to display photos of a marsh or swamp.
“The Rundown” also uses the monitor for topical graphics, such as showing the White House during political segments.
Diaz-Balart then got a chance to hold the critter and asked if he could put it down.
“Well, he might run off the thing…” said Magill.
Hey, Ron: That “thing” is an anchor desk!
