There are likely some professors at the University of West Virginia red-faced today after a recent graduate made his TV debut by dropping a string of obscenities.

A.J. Clemente went on the air for the first time at NBC North Dakota affiliate KFYR-TV and almost immediately blurted out a string of obscenities that left him looking like he was learning disabled.

“Say hello to the most disastrous start to a television career in the history of moving pictures inside little boxes and/or flat screens,” noted the Awful Announcing site.

Clemente, who must have missed the “assume the microphone is always on” lesson in school, has already been suspended (UPDATE: He has been fired.)

His co-anchor was so flustered by his actions she sounded worse than a high school broadcaster. Clemente’s performance has gone viral around the country.

How bad was Clemente’s performance?  It made David Letterman’s Top 10 List  of “TOP 10 SIGNS YOUR FIRST DAY AS A NEWS ANCHOR DIDN’T GO WELL.”

    SMALLER MARKET?
    oh, they just don’t make’em like they used to.

    i don’t know how many more markets down from North Dakota you could fall, but i think he’ll be lucky to even land in one of those.

    NOT READY FOR PRIME TIME
    This guy clearly was not ready for prime time.

    I think he cursed out of nervousness. I think the real issue isn’t that he didn’t know he was on the air when he cursed. I think the real issue is the character of someone who uses that kind of language, period.

    As using vulgar language casually becomes more commonplace in society generally, it’s wrong to penalize someone who uses such language in such a way.

    If he hadn’t been on the air when he uttered his vulgar phrase, no one would care that he said what he said when he said it.

    • GUTTER SLOP
      “As using vulgar language casually becomes more commonplace in society generally, it’s wrong to penalize someone who uses such language in such a way.”

      Seriously? That simply explains why this gutter slop is proliferating.
