A.J. Clemente Plotting His TV Comeback While Working as a Bartender

A.J. Clemente, the rookie anchor who started his career at Bismarck, ND, NBC affiliate KFYR with the expletives “fuckin’ shit,” has found work again.  According to RumorFix.com, he’s a bartender at the “Table and Taproom” in Dewey Beach, DE.

“This is what I’m doing for now — I definitely need to make money for bills,” Clemente told RumorFix.

Clemente said he would begin his TV comeback after a summer of working at the watering hole which is using Clemente’s fame to draw customers. The bar’s marquee reads, “AJ CLEMENTE STRAIGHT FROM LETTERMAN TONIGHT BEHIND THE BAR.”

The 24-year-old was fired one day after he said he didn’t realize his mic was on while rehearsing the name of the London Marathon winner Tsegaye Kebede. You can watch the video after the jump.
