Newbie News Anchor in North Dakota Has a Really Bad First Broadcast

I learned early this morning about NBC North Dakota Anchor AJ Clemente who had a really bad first day on the job. During the opening credits of his first broadcast, Clemente was overheard saying "gay... f**king sh*t." He basically forgot that his microphone was on. Some viewers immediately complained, which led to his suspension, which then led to him getting fired. It turns out that he was struggling to figure out how to pronounce the name "Tsegaye Kebede".

I totally feel bad for this guy. It's Watch the video at the end of this blog article. He is so nervous. It's painful to watch. It's unfortunate that this "rookie mistake" was made so publicly. Hopefully, he will learn from this mistake and excel at his next broadcasting job.
