North Dakota: News anchor debut doesn’t go so well

In the news business, you always assume your mic is on.

Always.

Always.

Always.

Last night was A.J. Clemente’s first night at the anchor desk for Bismarck NBC affiliate KFYR. Things did not go well for A.J. as you see in the video above.  His first words on the air were “f**kin shit.”  Oops.

Here’s how things went down after that:

• Update (9:10 p.m.): A.J.’s been suspended.

• Update (11:12 p.m.): Here’s how KFYR opened their 10 p.m. newscast, sans A.J. and with an apology:

• Update (12:04 p.m.): A.J. has been fired.

Bless his heart.
