Hot Slut Of The Day!

April 22, 2013 / Posted by:

A.J. Clemente, the rookie news anchor who had the best first (and last) day on the job ever when he opened the nightly news with my kind of sign-on catchphrase.

During the first few seconds of his first broadcast on KFRY News in Bismarck, North Dakota, A.J. Clemente mumbled out the words that most people say at the start of each work day: “…fuckin’ shit.” It only took those two words for A.J. Clemente to become my favorite North Dakota news anchor! A.J.’s co-anchor Van Tieu tried to forget the “fuckin’ shit” in the room and she went on with the broadcast by asking A.J. to tell the viewers a little about himself. A.J. kept being the articulate serious journalist he is by saying, “Um…I’m used to..um…being from the East Coast.” Best answer ever.

Surprisingly, the station wasn’t filled with calls from viewers demanding that A.J. be promoted immediately. A bunch of fuckin’ shit-haters complained and he got suspended on his first day. KFRY’s news director had this to say about A.J.’s suspension on the station’s Facebook page:

To all of you who are writing in…I want to apologize for an incident that occurred prior to our early newscast this evening, when one of our employees used profanity on the air.

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.

A.J. also apologized on Twitter and said that he didn’t say the word “gay” before “fuckin’ shit.”

Tough day,Thanks for the support,We all make mistakes. Im truly sorry for mine. I’ll try my hardest to come back better and learn from this.

I just want to say that I did not say the word gay, I was trying to pronounce the London Marathon winners name Tsegaye Kebede.

It’s a good thing that KFRY suspended his ass, because now A.J. Clemente is free to replace Matt Lauer on Today! That mole and that sign-on catchphrase are way too big for Bismarck. Get him, NBC!
