North Dakota TV Anchor Fired After First Day For Saying ‘F****** S***’ On Air
(CBS) KFYR anchor A.J. Clemente had just about the worst possible first day on the job.
Clemente got his first shot at anchoring the NBC affiliate’s weekend newscast this Sunday night, and let’s just say it didn’t go as planned.
As the newscast began with Clemente’s co-anchor introducing him to the audience, Clemente was heard saying “f****** s***” on air.
After Clemente’s slip, he was clearly out of sorts, offering this after being asked to tell the viewing audience a little bit about himself:
“I’m very excited,” an obviously nervous Clemente said. “I graduated from West Virginia University and I’m used to being from the East Coast.”
After the video went viral around the Internet, KFYR decided to let the young newscaster go.
“Unfortunately KFYRTV has decided to let me go,” Clemente tweeted. “Thank you to them and everyone in ND for the opportunity and everyone for the support.
