A TV news anchor with NBC affiliate KSNW-TV on Saturday became the latest victim of the dreaded “hot mic.”
After concluding Saturday evening’s newscast and tossing to “Saturday Night Live,” anchor Justin Kraemer can clearly be heard telling his colleagues: “Let’s get the f*** out of here.”
As the title of the video uploaded on YouTube points out, “That’s gonna be a fine.” Kraemer will likely be issuing a lengthy apology if he hasn’t done so already.
Other anchors have been fired over accidental hot mic moments like this one (Warning: Strong language):
UPDATE: As FTVLive points out, Kraemer’s bio is no longer visible the KSNW-TV website. While that’s not confirmation that he’s been fired from his anchor job, it certainly isn’t a good sign in the world of local TV news.
“Kraemer had been at the station since 2008 and this was his second go around at KSNW. He worked at the station in the late 90′s through 2001,” FTVLive reports.
