A.J. Clemente, a new anchor at KFYR-TV, Bismarck, N.D., mumbled profane terms for fornication and excrement about 15 seconds into his first shift in front of the camera Sunday, the New York Post reported Monday.

Co-anchor Van Tieu continued the broadcast as if nothing had happened.

"You may have seen our newest reporter A.J. on North Dakota News and he'll be joining the weekend news team as my co-anchor," she said.

However Clemente may have been on his last broadcast as he was suspended following the incident.

The network apologized for the language.

"We can't take back what was said ... all we can do at this point is ask for your forgiveness," News Director Monica Hannan said in a statement.

Clemente acknowledged his mistake on Twitter after the broadcast.

"That couldn't have gone any worse," he tweeted.
