I was listening to WFMU a few years ago and I heard this insane fake news report type thing. A reporter in a helicopter is covering a car crash that slowly builds and builds until it becomes apocalyptic (possibly there's an alien attack). He stays perfectly calm through the whole thing.

There was a dj on WFMU who did a couple of those things, I remember when flight 587 ( I think) crashed in Queens there was a fake news report from the bay and the DJ was supposedly in a rowboat reporting on the types of wreckage he was finding floating in the water.

WFMU is doing their fundraiser now, why don't you call them or e-mail them?

That reminds me of a comic, I can't remember who it was, doing Harry Carey as he deapans the distant nuclear blasts and mushroom clouds of the apocolypse while continue to narrate the baseball action.

Best answer: Sounds like Joe Frank's "Eye in the Sky" episode from his series Somewhere Out There.
