When will they learn?
A Detroit TV reporter dropped an F-bomb live on Wednesday’s morning news as she struggled to put on her earpiece, becoming the latest reporter to have her career jolted by a live mic.
Lauren Podell, a reporter for Local 4 News, was covering a fire in Lapeer, Mich. when the news anchors tossed to her live shot. As she was fixing her earpiece off camera, she was heard expressing her frustration with preparations for the shot, clearly unaware that she was on the air. She then yelled out “I can’t get this f****** in there,” referring to her earpiece.
One of the news anchors, Evrod Cassimy, immediately apologized for the epic fail.
This isn’t the first and certainly won’t be the last time a news personality has tossed around inappropriate language during a live segment.
Anchor Sue Simmons dropped an F-bomb during a live tease in 2008, yelling at co-anchor Chuck Scarborough, “The f*** are you doing!”
