Video: Weather Girl Jenna Lee Thomas Gets Marriage Proposal During Broadcast

Weather girl Jenna Lee Thomas, who works for news station WJBF in Augusta, Georgia, got the surprise of a lifetime last week when her boyfriend proposed during a live broadcast (video below).

Thomas was doing the five-day forecast when her tuxedo-clad boyfriend, Eric Wright, entered the studio and popped the question.

Wright got in touch with weekend anchor Jillian Benfield last month about his plans, which involved the entire WJBF production crew.

Wright in the bathroom as producers waited for the right moment for him to ambush Thomas.

Shocked and full of excitement, Thomas accepted, saying "I love you'"and planting a long, passionate kiss on his lips.

The couple met earlier this year during an event at homas’ church in Augusta.

Wright told the station that he will be moving to the area next year, where he will be an emergency room doctor at a nearby hospital.

On her Twitter account, Thomas thanked her colleagues and the WJBF viewers for the outpouring of congratulatory messages.
