Trapped deep inside of Mike Tyson is an evening news anchor ... who came busting out right after Flavor Flav's latest arrest -- and the video of his "audition" is just awesome.
Tyson was on "The Damon Elliott Show" in Las Vegas -- a new talk show set to air on the CW this summer -- and while waiting for Flav, who was also a guest, they got word he'd been busted.
Sources on set Thursday ... tell us Iron Mike suddenly went all Edward R. Murrow, and decided he needed to report the news to the studio audience.
Watch, it's hardly "Nightline" -- but then again ... it's way more entertaining.
