Delivering the news is a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it – unless you’re WXVT’s Eric Zernich. Then you just full-on panic.

On Breaking Greenville, a truTV reality show that follows news anchors at rival stations in one of the smallest news markets in America, Zernich totally blew his “shot at the majors.”

“This is one of the first times I’ve gone into the studio and gotten to present one of my feature stories,” said the meteorologist in an exclusive clip obtained by PEOPLE. “Hopefully someone in a bigger market out there, like New York, might see this and it will be my calling card up to the majors and get me out of Greenville.”

Judging by what happens next in the above clip (which airs on the March 26 episode), he may need to wait a little while longer yet.

In another exclusive sneak peek from the March 12 episode, anchor Steve Schill decides to reveal on air that he and his wife are going through a divorce. Brace yourselves: It gets awkward.

“It didn’t work out, folks,” Schill confesses. “My wife, for whatever reason, decided that she was never going to be here and decided not to support me in my move here.”

When you report local news in a small town, news is news – even if it hits a little too close to home.

Breaking Greenville airs Thursdays (10:30 p.m. ET) on truTV.
