WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - A reporter from North Carolina is looking for a  seamstress this morning after an on-air showdown.

When he tried to show off his jumping skills against a cheerleader on live television, it didn't go so well for his pants.

The reporter had a sense of humor about the whole situation and so did his bosses.

The station posted a message on Instagram saying, "Bad news, Chris Lea split his pants live on air. Good news, he's wearing underwear. #wardrobemalfunction!"
