F-Bomb Star A.J. Clemente Wants ESPN Job (Do You Want To Tell Him, Or Should We?)

Subscribe to David Letterman alerts

A.J. Clemente, the young anchor who became an internet sensation after beginning his live-television career with a HUGE F-Bomb, says he has his sights set on a top job at ESPN. Clemente was fired by Bismarck TV station KFYR on his first day for cursing several times instead of introducing the news.

"F*cking sh*t" were Clemente's very first words on air, before being sacked by bosses at the local station. "Unfortunately KFYRTV has decided to let me go," the young presenter tweeted afterwards, "Thank you to them and everyone in North Dakota for the opportunity and everyone for the support."

After gaining a surprise internet following, Clemente appeared on David Letterman's Late Show on Wednesday (April 24,2013) and chatted about what's next for him in the news business. "If ESPN comes knocking ..." he said with a wry smile. He noted that he was open to "better offers" after Letterman asked whether he would consider returning to the Dakota station. 

"I crawled in bed and called my parents," Clemente said, of what he did after the firing. "At first, it was an emotional conversation obviously. But the next day, you've got to pick yourself up and laugh at yourself."

Do you think A.J. Clemente has the ability to work for a national news provider, such as ESPN?
