Reporter gets a nice response from Beyoncé’s mom after sneaking song titles into the traffic update

A Philadelphia reporter who added a touch of style to a traffic bulletin by peppering it with references to Beyoncé has received a lot of attention, including from the pop star’s mother.

Watko quickly made allusions to the song fly and managed to get 15 in the under two-minute segment, which she made without a script or teleprompter.

Although the traffic report won Watko many new fans online, probably none have been as exciting as Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles. Knowles posted a clip of the segment on Instagram, writing that it was “So cool!”

Watko responded enthusiastically on Twitter on Friday.

“I will NEVER recover since Ms. Tina posted my Beyoncé traffic bulletin on her IG yesterday,” adding an emoji she said represented “fainting.”
