Who Will Be the First to Book Bismarck Anchor Fired For Saying ‘F-ckin Shit’ On the Air?

A standard rule across the television business: always assume your mic is hot. A local news anchor in Bismarck learned that lesson the hard way last night during his debut newscast on NBC affiliate KFYR, when the first words out of his mouth were “fuckin’ shit.” (TVSpy has the video.)

As it turns out, A.J. Clemente‘s first words on the station were also some of his last. KFYR did not allow him back on the air to anchor the late newscast and, according to his Twitter account, fired him this morning.

Clemente has been fielding interview requests on Twitter. Our question: which television network will get to him first?
