SARASOTA, Fla. - Our own Wendy Ross had a small airborne visitor during her weather segment on Thursday's Good Morning Suncoast.

A gnat in the studio flew right into her mouth as she was live on the air.

"I think I just swallowed (coughs) a bug!"

Always the true professional, Wendy was able to laugh it off and continue with the forecast.
