(Salon.com) Dropping the f-bomb on live TV might have been the best thing that ever happened to former North Dakota news anchor A.J. Clemente’s budding career. Clemente, who was fired for the slip, became an overnight sensation as footage from his unfortunate first day went viral. While he lost his job, Clemente has been booked to appear on the "Today" show Wednesday morning and "Late Show" Wednesday night to discuss the firing. Clemente’s gaffe is certainly not the first time a news anchor has made an embarrassing misstep on live TV. As of now, Clemente is a "free agent," tweeting: "Rookie mistake. I’m a free agent. Cant help but laugh at myself and stay positive.Wish i didnt trip over my ‘Freaking Shoes’ out of the gate." Host @DavidBegnaud delivers breaking news and today's trending buzz in 45 seconds.
