Radio DJ's water breaks on air
Denver morning host whisked out of the studio, taken to the hospital
Plenty of women work right up to the last moment of their pregnancies these days, but few of them have had to share some the unpleasantness of those waning hours with an entire city.
A morning radio host in Denver did just that Wednesday morning.
Kathie J, co-host of the KS1075. morning show, sat powerless as her water broke while one of her fellow hosts, Kendall B, introduced a story, Denver TV station KDVR reported.
The show's third and final host, Larry Ulibarri, wasted no time proving his gender.
"Oh my God, gross!" Ulibarri said. "That is so … Did you just pee?"
Soon after the initial moments of panic, Kathie explained her suspicion that her water just broke, and then turned back to her co-hosts, asking, "What do I do now?"
"Call your husband, for God's sake!" Kendall B exclaimed.
Kathie J was helped out of the studio and taken to a local hospital, where she gave birth to a baby girl.
Explaining her due date was not until the coming Tuesday, Kathie J said she was caught off guard when her water broke almost a week early.
"I was just going to keep working and working, and, oh my gosh, there it happened," she said. "I felt like I was tinkling myself on-air. And that's not normal."
