KDLT anchor Jennifer Hudspeth was surprised by her boyfriend of 3 years with an on air proposal during the stations 10 o'clock news Friday night. Nate Johnson of Apple Valley, Minnesota surprised the former Miss Minnesota 2007 when he enlisted the rest of the news staff to pull off the proposal. They concocted a phony story about a proposal in a nearby town. Her co-anchor Tom Hanson switched the story at the last minute and introduced a taped announcement from Johnson. Johnson then walked out from behind the set and asked her to marry him live on the air. Hudspeth accepted. The two knew each other in high school but did not start dating until 7 years later.
