Rookie News Anchor Fired On First Day For Swearing On Live TV


Rookie news anchor A.J. Clemente was fired on his first day on the job as anchor at NBC’s affiliate in Bismarck, North Dakota when he accidentally said “F—— sh–” live on the air — as his co-anchor was introducing him. He was not aware that his microphone was on. Clemente confirmed Monday that he was fired from the station and is a free agent, tweeting “Rookie mistake. I’m a free agent. Cant help but laugh at myself and stay positive. Wish I didnt trip over my ‘Freaking Shoes’ out of the gate.”
