June 20 (UPI) -- A pair of news anchors in North Carolina began laughing hysterically after one of them let a belch slip on air.

Ben Williamson, a weekend news anchor for Charlotte's WBTV, left his co-anchor Lyndsay Tapases covering her face in laughter after he accidentally burped Saturday while introducing an upcoming weather segment.

"There it went. I knew that was gonna happen," Williamson said. "I ate the cobbler. I was feeling it. I was trying to hold it in and that just happened on TV."

Williamson entered the situation following a segment where he tried food prepared by local chefs and had eaten a piece of berry cobbler while promoting the 18th annual Dine Out for Kids event.

"I'm surprised that's never happened to you before with as much food as we eat on this show," Tapases said.

Tapases managed to look up in the midst of her laughter to point out that her co-host had forgotten to say "excuse me."

"You're embarrassing me. Excuse me," Williamson replied. "Excuse me."

The pair slowly recovered from the fit of laughter, as Tapases began reporting the weather before stopping to check if Williamson was over the burping incident.

"Do you have another one coming?" she asked. "Are you sure?"

Williamson ultimately fought through his embarrassment to assure he was fine as the segment came to a close.
