(IRISH INDEPENDENT) — In the Worst Case Scenario section entitled ‘first day in my new broadcasting job’ the name A.J. Clemente will forever be present.

Mr. Clemente, a rookie KFYR news anchor, opened his first-ever broadcast for his new station by saying ‘f****** s***’ into a live microphone, leaving his co-anchor, and no doubt his producers, dumbfounded by his sweary outburst.

Video footage of the incident, which has now gone viral, shows Mr Clemente’s colleague Van Tieu, who was clearly thrown by his colourful language, stumble mid-introduction.
