Three Japanese reporters didn't manage and broke in tears when reporting Ayrton Senna's death live (this is on youtube). Galv„o Bueno, a personal friend to Senna and Brazilian Reporter, managed to keep his professionalism while on live broadcast, but had to interrupt it several times allowing the other reporters to take over while he wiped his tears.

Not so much a Stepford Smiler, because you can't see his face as Narrator, but it fits the trope; the man has broken in tears on the inside like the entire Country. (More than one country, as it seems; as Japanese people apparently also felt the loss, just as bad.)
