Worst First Day Ever?

On Sunday, A.J. Clemente had his first day on-air as a news anchor for KFYR in Bismarck. It was also his last day. Above, you can see why. Although many people took to the North Dakota channel's Facebook page to express their support for a guy who seemed to have first-day jitters, it was apparently not enough.

Here's hoping that Clemente's Internet fame is enough to get him his next gig. And that his first day at the new place goes better.
