Sometimes spot-news reporters are trying to work their way up to an anchor's seat, other times they're trying to report the news before anyone else, but only a select few are actually heroes.
They're the reporters who got into journalism to be like Clark Kent and Lois Lane, the brave souls who stand outside with a mic and report the news as it happens, often while risking their own lives.
A brave soul named Teresa Mannion stood outside to warn about the dangers of storm Desmond, and her passionate reporting and quotes like "don't swim in the sea!" made her an internet hero.
And as Teresa's legend grows the memes and Photoshopped images have begun to pour in:
Someone even made an electronic dance music remix of Teresa's report, because every good hero should have their own theme music.
