TV Anchor Fired for On-Air Swearing, General Awkwardness

by at . Comments

A.J. Clemente has been fired by from his news anchoring job at KFYR in Bismarck, North Dakota.

After one broadcast. For uttering back-to-back curses as the first words anyone heard him say on air.

The snafu took place last night and was followed by an anxious, especially awkward introduction by Clementine, who at least took his ousting in stride.

"Rookie mistake. I'm a free agent," Clementine Tweeted today. "Can't help but laugh at myself and stay positive. Wish i didnt trip over my 'Freaking Shoes' out of the gate."

We wish A.J. the best of luck going forward. And thank him for making our day with this clip.
