Rooting for TV Anchor Newbie AJ Clemente to Find Redemption... And a Better Job!

If you don't have a sense of humor, life can be pretty tough!  AJ Clemente was about to make his TV debut as the new weekend news anchor of a local North Dakota television station. As he was practicing saying the names of folks he was unfamiliar with, he did what any other normal human being would do, he got frustrated, nervous and started cursing under his breath as he struggled to get things right. Unfortunately what he did not know was that they went to air 30 seconds earlier then expected and his frustration was caught on tape.

Clearly folks at that station don't have much of a sense of humor as they immediately fired the poor guy.

I hope, if there is any justice in this world, the universe will bless this guy will an opportunity to do what he loves but to reach a larger audience than he ever could imagine. How can you not feel for this guy? Who among us has not been in this guy's shoes in one form or another?

For me, I think the situation is completely hysterical! The woman trying to announce his joining the news team is so completely thrown off it almost feels like a comedy sketch as he is co nervous he continues to fumble along completely oblivious to his impending fate.

If this kid doesn't get a break and find himself a job in broadcasting, there is something wrong with that industry.

I dare you to watch this clip and not seriously laugh your ass off!

I'm rooting for you AJ!!

  1. Wow, can't believe he got fired for that! Seems like the station could have used that as an opportunity to increase its viewership by taking a "hey, $hit happens" approach .

    1. Yeah, it is definitely a missed opportunity they MUST be regretting as they look petty.

  2. I would have fired him for being a bumbling idiot. She wasn't any better either.

    1. True. He fumbled just about everything he said and she looked terrified. Seemed a bit like college students over their heads.

  3. I kinda feel sorry for him. He's clearly nervous and stressed.
    I can't help feeling that live news is not his forte though. Good luck to his future endeavours.

    1. Yeah, he was too nervous and might need to spend more time as a reporter b4 taking the weekend anchor seat. Things must be very mellow in that North Dakota town. Still I can't help rooting for the guy!
