Perfect parody of a TV news report

In the public radio world, many of us have dreamed of/produced parodies of the quintessential NPR piece that starts with footsteps crunching through gravel or through a field. Next comes the intro of the farmer or environmentalist or widowed mother of four, followed by a pithy cut from him or her ... You get the picture.
