In fairness, GWAR's Farking an Animal is really hard to get out of your head.

If by "suspended", you mean "fired", then yes, Subby, he was "suspended".

/Stick to credible news sources in the future.

News director:

"The person involved has been suspended until we resolve the situation"

Yeah WVU.
 
2013-04-22 02:20:39 PM  
No where to go from here but UP!!1! Seriously, don't media professionals know never, ever swear because you don't know if your mic or someone else's mic is on?

/restroom breaks are also included..
 
2013-04-22 02:21:15 PM  
To which all 5 people in North Dakota said "Meh, big farking deal."
 
2013-04-22 02:21:23 PM  
So he did like this guy?

We're here at KFYR, that's K farking yeah right, bringing you the news for the night.
 
2013-04-22 02:21:36 PM  
So i'm wondering if he froze up on TV when he had a chance to speak because someone was whispering into his ear that he had a hot mic? Because if his short bio speech was indicative of his on air personality he wouldn't last long in the  industry anyway.
 
2013-04-22 02:24:00 PM  
Give me a break. This whole country is way too hair trigger about being offended. If you want to keep your kids pure, don't have a TV.
 
2013-04-22 02:24:48 PM  
FTFA (first line, no less): "The weekend news anchor who started his new job by swearing live on air with his first words has been let go today by his news station in North Dakota."

This. TMZ is reporting he's been canned.

In other news, there is at least one Asian living in North Dakota.
 
2013-04-22 02:26:57 PM  
So he went from West Virginia to North Dakota.  Not really moving up in the world, was he?  Where's he going to go next?  Alabama?
 
2013-04-22 02:27:08 PM  
Way to keep it real, brah!

Back to the frathouse for Natty Lights!
 
2013-04-22 02:30:22 PM  
Suddenly, it dawned on A.J. that he was living in North Dakota. North Dakota! He knew he had to do whatever it would take to get out of his contract before the broadcast was over.
 
2013-04-22 02:30:24 PM  
Well, he said he was east coast. They love that stuff over there. Just ask Al "This MotherFarking Rain Aint Never Letting Up" Roker.
 
2013-04-22 02:31:19 PM  
The person responsible for sacking him has been sacked.

jonjr215: Asian living in North Dakota.



Vietnamese news readers often find work in the Dakotas.  It's just one of those things like Chinese kids being good at math and puppets liking tartar sauce and Germans liking to have sex with poop.

RIP ROBERTO

/probably his last words, too
 
2013-04-22 02:32:41 PM  
I'm more dumbfounded by the TV station that found a Hispanic man and a Vietnamese woman in North Dakota.

I threw up a little in my mouth.

2013-04-22 02:33:46 PM  
sorry.  They may be credible but you said TMZ, which makes me throw up.

Finally tonight, we have to say good bye to a colleague of ours. With his departure, I will be the only minority broadcaster in North Dakota and will be irreplaceable. So, who wants to see my underwear? Send the kiddies to bed and join me back here at 11.

Looking to sublease a condo in North Dakota. Good location downtown. Close to everything that is actually there. Great floor layout. 11 months and 30 days left on the lease.

A satire tape I heard years ago about a mythical Bismarck radio station(maybe the real deal?) had as one of the characters presented on air as Conrad X. Jones, the negro newscaster. I believe the only minorities in North Dakota are at Grand Forks AFB.
 
2013-04-22 02:40:54 PM  
I smell a reality show in his future...or is that a realtor's license. Same diff.

Huh, I didn't think tumbleweeds were sentient, let alone aware of current events and a worthy enough audience to produce newscasts for...

Oh, I'm getting word from my producer that "people" actually live in North Dakota, too, though I find that hard to believe. Hey, can we get this fact-checked? We're live, here.

Yes they do. Unfortunately, we're getting fewer and fewer media professionals and more and more college kids looking to get on TV. Station management, still stuck in the dark ages by and large, see this as a two-fold benefit: a) young college kids will pull in a younger demo (which is absolutely not even the case) and b) less experience means we can pay them less. This is especially true in tiny markets. Thus, you get this guy.

I've seen this exact thing happen... where the profanity just seems to come out of nowhere. That's pure lack of experience and nothing else. Even just a few years as a reporter, with a couple of liveshots going sideways, would keep this from happening. There's a good chance he was a producer or an intern at a big market, sent out a tape, and they snapped him up and put him at the anchor desk.

If your debut and curtain call doing the local news in North Dakota is the same broadcast, you might want to consider a different career.

Man, how those viewers suffered.  We can't allow this.
 
2013-04-22 03:04:06 PM  
the trick is to have such a thick accent that you can only THINK its an f-bomb but never really hear it...

Norm Macdonald, just one more O.J. joke.
