Apos: His more experienced(?) co-anchor seemed far more nervous, but she at least had the presence of mind to not utter a stream of expletives on the air.


She looks nervous, but I thought it was because she probably saw them on the monitors and heard him cussing.  To me it looked like she knew all of it was being aired and just didn't know how to react.  I'd imagine someone with even five years of experience might get tripped up with something like that.  It's also local news, so professionalism isn't necessarily required.

FrancoFile: Matthew Keene: The FCC is usually very forgiving if steps are taken that it not happen again. Like firing the offending employee. That being said, CSB. In the late 70s, I was on the air at a major station in Cincinnati doing an early Saturday shift. The station, trying to be like CKLW, did news at 5 before the hour. ABC Network had a tendency to do feeds off the line of Paul Harvey for playback later. One feed was at 6:50am if I recall, and was the responsibility of the news guy to record for playback. In getting ready to hit the air, he forgot to roll tape. He discovered this fact at shortly after 7am. In frustration, he storms out of the news booth, and into the main studio just as the red light above the door came on for my 7:03 between the records segway. Before I'd gotten a word out, clear as a bell from the newsguy's mouth came 'This motherfarking taping shiat has got to stop.' I didn't say a word. Closed the mic as the record came up. He wanted to apologize on the air, but I talked him out of it, because the listeners at that hour on a Saturday are usually in bed, hungover, or still drunk, and can't be sure of what they heard. Never got a call, and nothing ever came of it.

Did you have a nerdy news guy, a lecherous salesman, and a hot receptionist?


I know that station!  Sure the receptionist is hot, but who you really want to get to know (ifyaknowwhatimean) is the nerdy girl that sometimes does the news and other odd jobs around the place.

reported: Probably fake. Why would someone decide to record the start of the local evening newscast on their camera phone? Also the expletives are recorded before the reporters appear on the screen (and presumably before the mics go live) so it's likely the voice of the person recording the vid. Surely even a rookie TV reporter from WV wouldn't be that dumb? (But if it is real, he's gonna have to go back home to work in the coal mines... no company (even fast-food or WalMart) would want to risk employing him in a client-facing position.)

He got fired because he said gay in that context, not the other word.

Because that's who runs the media now. That's the whiners that bring the pressure on. No one besides a few prudes cares if the f word gets out.

I was at WEBN for a while in the late '90's early 2000's.  There were a few words that flew out over the years...that tends to happen when you give drunk strippers an open mic!  Thank god there was no DVR for radio!  We never got a call either...even with the CCV listening.

My first night on the air (radio) in a small town in central PA, I dropped an F-bomb. The only call I got was from a friend of mine that wanted to know when they added that word to the lyrics of "Black Dog". The music director heard it but the program director never said a word.  I almost miss radio every now and then.

One of the very first things they taught us in the broadcasting part of my AV/Production course in college was to always assume every mic and camera was live and act accordingly.

I guess they don't teach that at West Virginia University.

I'd maybe give him the benefit of the doubt, if he wasn't so awful in just introducing himself.   I know a station in middle of nowhere Dakota doesn't have a lot of choices for where to get on-air talent, but, sheesh, his intro of himself is almost as cringe-worthy as the infamous college TV weather guy.  Did they even put him in front of a camera to see how he'd do?

Here's video of a DJ dropping an on-air obscenity on his first day on the job. Amazingly, he'd been fired from a previous job for doing the same thing.

Traditionally, the rule was if it was fleeting and non-sexual, it wasn't a big deal.  Then the religious right went apeshiat over Bono accidently saying "fark" at the Grammys and it's been a mess ever since.

It does sound like even after Van Tieu starts talking, Clemente is still trying to sound out Tsegaye Kebede's name. He got frustrated at not being able to pronounce it and in a case of horrendous timing, swore out of frustration and nerves.

I'd watch Geoffrey Rush as the Doctor.  In fact, I'll watch him in anything as he has a lot of the off-kilter qualities that the actors who've played the Doctor have.  The introduction of Rush's character to George VI in the film is a perfect example.

Both of them looked like deer caught in the headlights.

I imagine that there might be a bit of yelling in their earpieces. (On my phone I can't tell if they're wearing them, but I assume they are.)

Also: "...I am used to, uh, being from the East Coast." WTF? I know 6-year-olds that are better at introducing themselves. (The only reason I can see for him to be that horrible at introducing himself is that he was trying to talk and listen to the scolding coming from his earpiece.)

I wonder how much $ that will end up costing the station...
