An anchorman for NBC’s Wichita affiliate has been fired after accidentally uttering an expletive at the end of a newscast.

The Wichita Eagle reports KSN weekend anchor Justin Kraemer muttered, “Let’s get the (expletive) out of here,” after Saturday’s 10 p.m. newscast. The cameras had already cut away from the anchors, who had signed off, and the end-of-broadcast music had played – but viewers heard the comment.

Kraemer says he was let go Monday and that he completely understood the station’s decision. A YouTube clip posted by a viewer minutes after the broadcast has had more than 1 million viewers.

Kraemer says he’s “embarrassed” and that the slip-up followed “a very long day.”

Although he declined to offer details, Kraemer says he’s lined up his next job move.

Looks like that guy who caused all the trouble on here to cause all the changes and loss of revenue to the site is back. Most of us figured it was staff of the radio station and it looks like we were correct as no one else has been successful in doing this. Very evident an inside job.
