It was 10:24 p.m. on Saturday night (12/14), and KSN's weekend news anchor Justin Kraemer just wanted to get the fuck out of there. So he told his coworkers as much. While still on the air. With a hot mic.

News Anchor's Fucking Honest Sign-Off Puts Ron Burgundy to Shame (http://gawker.com/news-anchors-fucking-honest-sign-off-puts-ron-burgundy-1484064191)
Award-winner Wichita anchor/reporter Justin Kraemer has been in the business a long time, so it's understandable that working the weekend shift*

"Iím embarrassed," he told The Wichita Eagle (http://www.kansas.com/2013/12/17/3184297/ksn-anchor-justin-kraemer-fired.html) in his first interview since the Sign-Off Heard Round the World (http://gawker.com/news-anchors-fucking-honest-sign-off-puts-ron-burgundy-1484064191). "I did something extraordinarily unprofessional. Itís something thatís drilled into you from the minute you start in this business to always consider the microphones hot."

The FCC indicated it would not fine KSN for Kraemer's fleeting fuck, as it took place during the 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. time slot during which "indecent or profane speech that is broadcast...is not actionable."

But according to the Eagle, KSN decided to part ways with Kraemer just the same.

Kraemer said it was "fascinating" and "surreal" to see the clip go viral, but he understands why it happened.

"TV news has got a lot of issues right now, and one of the biggest issues with TV news is that a strong argument can be made that itís insincere and fake," he was quoted as saying. "At least Iím real. If I have an epitaph, thatís what it is."

Kraemer told the Eagle he plans to leave town and is "pretty positive Iím going to end up landing on my feet."

In fact, there is reason to believe he already has.

A tipster writing into Gawker says Kraemer already had one foot out the door when he dropped his F-bomb.

According to the tipster, Kraemer was recently hired by Colorado Springs NBC affiliate KOAA, and last weekend was to be his final weekend at KSN, which is why he was so eager to leave.

We've asked KOAA for a comment, and will update if they respond.


According to the tipster, this is a "joke" package Kraemer re-cut from a real story that was forwarded to a few close friends:

From Westword:

Occasionally, we have to report bad news -- and that's what we're bringing to you now. To whit: Justin Kraemer, the Wichita anchorman caught muttering "Let's get the fuck out of here" line at the end of a recent newscast (see it below), isn't coming to KOAA in Colorado Springs, despite a Gawker tipster's claim. The complete statement by the outlet's general manager, as forwarded by marketing director Sydney Rubin, reads like so: "Despite reports, Justin Kraemer will not be working at KOAA."
