Newscaster Fired After Using The F-word

The newscaster on Wichita NBC affiliate KSNW ended Saturday night's newscast with "let's get the f*ck outta here." Guess what? He's been fired. Justin Kraemer, KSNW's weekend anchor, joined the station in 2008.

He previously worked at KSNW "in the late 90s through 2001," according to a cached version of his online bio, which has been stripped from the station's website.

Per The Wichita Eagle: "I'm embarrassed," he said. "I did something extraordinarily unprofessional. It's something that's drilled into you from the minute you start in this business to always consider the microphone's hot."

The FCC indicated it would not fine KSN for Kraemer's fleeting f*ck, as it took place during the 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. time slot during which "indecent or profane speech that is broadcast... is not actionable."
