July 27 (UPI) -- A large spider got its moment in the spotlight during a live news report after crawling on a reporter's arm.

FOX 4 News in Texas shared video of the spider crawling on Shannon Murray's left shoulder while she was reporting on worker's protesting at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

"The itsy bitsy spider crawled down the reporter's arm," the station said.

Anchors commended Murray for keeping her composure and continuing to report the news without fear as the spider crawled down her arm.

The reporter later revealed she was actually unaware of the spider until a viewer pointed it out afterward.

"For those asking, YES I felt it! But I had no idea it was a spider until a VIEWER let me know on Facebook!" Murray wrote in response to the video.

Video of Murray's spider encounter was viewed nearly 300,000 times, as commenters celebrated the reporter for not "freaking out."
