Video: Swearing news anchor AJ Clemente appears on David Letterman's Late Show

A.J. Clemente , a rookienews anchor who opened his first - and indeed last - broadcast for his new station by saying  'f****** s***' into a live microphone, has described the experience to talk show host David Letterman.

Video footage of the incident, which has now gone viral, shows Mr Clemente's colleague Van Tieu, who was clearly thrown by his colourful language, stumble mid-introduction.

Despite a concerted social media campaign, employing the hashtag #saveAJ, Mr Clemente announced on Twitter that he had been fired by KFYR-TV and was now a free-agent, writing: "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."
