News Anchor Doesn’t Know His Mic Is Still LiveBy: Amanda Crum - December 16, 2013
There have been many, many instances of news anchors forgetting themselves and letting an F-bomb slip, or fumbling over their words and accidentally broadcasting a euphemism for a body part to their entire viewing area. But sometimes, a reporter will do us all a favor and forget that their mic is still on, resulting in hilarity (and possibly a firing).
That’s what happened to Wichita anchor Justin Kraemer, an award-winning journalist who just happens to curse like a sailor. Kraemer let his viewers know exactly how he felt about being done for the night during a recent broadcast, leading to some comparisons to Ron Burgundy.
Will Ferrell actually anchored a real newscast in North Dakota recently as part of a marketing campaign for “Anchorman 2″, which quickly went viral.
