News anchor fired after first day on the job


Meet news anchor A.J. Clemente, who’s new job at KFYR in North Dakota got off to a really bad start… so much so that he was fired after his first appearance.

Clemente was trying to correctly pronounce London Marathon winner Tsegaye Kebede’s name just before he and his co-anchor Van Tieu went on the air. His frustration showed as they went live and viewers got to hear A.J. utter “F—ing sh-t” as the announcer introduced the newscast.

Way to go A.J.! What’s equally as funny is the way both anchors try to coherently continue on with the broadcast. Watch the awkwardness…
