Time Warner Cable News reporter Jess Mitchell got quite a surprise Tuesday when a co-worker proposed to her on the air.
That co-worker, fellow reporter Chris Cybulski, got the answer he was hoping for when a shocked Mitchell said “yes.”
The wedding proposal happened at Zilker Park, where Mitchell was reporting on plans to close much of the park to prepare for the Austin City Limits Music Festival. Midway through the report, Cybulski appeared.
“Jess, I love you and I want to spend the rest of my life with you,” he said.
The two first met four years ago, according to a story on the Time Warner Cable News website.
“Chris’ laid-back Southern attitude, and Jess’ New York hustle, provided the ying and yang that brought the two together,” the story says.
Mitchell and Cybulski plan to marry next year.
