Reporter sounds off after being harassed during Clemson-Georgia live shot
Fans at the Georgia-Clemson game were a bit too close for comfort for a Georgia reporter.
Lyndsey Gough, who is the sports director for WTOC11 in Savannah, Georgia, shared a video of fans posing for the camera and apparently touching the female reporter. Gough eventually had to tell her studio that she would have to change locations after multiple fans interrupted her.
Here is the raw video of the multiple exchanges via Gough’s Twitter page:
After the first guy touched me I started rolling… this isn't even all of it. So uncomfortable. Can we please respect people's space pic.twitter.com/1r0VQVoBoq

Gough repeatedly asked fans to give her more space but several fans declined to honor that request as they repeatedly jumped in front of the camera and came well within an arm’s length of her.
Georgia beat Clemson 10-3 on Saturday. The game was held in Charlotte, North Carolina.
