Florida reporter Kyla Galer went viral on Wednesday for using a condom to keep her microphone dry on live TV.
Galer was speaking from a Fort Myers, Florida parking lot, reporting on Hurricane Ian. During her report, she confirmed that the condom was exactly what everyone thought it was.
“NBC 2 practicing safe microphone reporting during hurricane Ian,” tweeted one viewer.

She later defended her usage of the condom on her Instagram story.
“A lot of people are asking what is on my microphone,” she said.
“It is what you think it is. It’s a condom. It helps protect the gear. You can’t get these mics wet. There’s a lot of wind and a lot of rain, so we gotta do what we gotta do and that is put a condom on the microphone,” she continued.

As the condom over the microphone went viral, Jeff Butera of ABC7 chimed in his thoughts on the issue.
“WE PRACTICE SAFE HURRICANE REPORTING,” tweeted ABC 7’s Jeff Butera. “Yes, it’s a condom. Nothing better to waterproof a microphone.”
** WE PRACTICE SAFE HURRICANE REPORTING **
Yes, it's a condom.
Nothing better to waterproof a microphone.
My Waterman Broadcasting colleague @kylagaler has been fielding lots of questions, haha.
