TV ANCHOR SUSPENDED, Swearing on live television is not really the best way to start a job. A.J. Clemente, a brand-new North Dakota TV anchor, has been suspended from his job after beginning a broadcast with profanity.

The incident occurred on Sunday (April 21), when cameras at KFYR-TV out of Bismarck, North Dakota, began rolling just as Clemente uttered the words “F***ing s**t.” Those were the very first words the would-be anchor would utter on the channel.

There were complaints, of course (which is unfortunate, since this was terribly entertaining), and KFYR-TV news director Monica Hannan quickly addressed them on the channel’s Facebook page:

“He did not realize his microphone was on, but still, that’s no excuse. WE train our reporters to always assume that any microphone is live at any time. Unfortunately, that was not enough in this case. WE can’t take back what was said. The person involved has been suspended until we resolve the situation. All we can do at this point is ask for your forgiveness, and I can offer my personal assurance that I will do my best to ensure that nothing like this ever happens again under my watch.”
