A TV anchor was reading the news when a man started whispering "lick it, smell it".

Live television news broadcasts can be tricky.

You see, things can go wrong, and when (not if, but when) they go wrong, the newsreader often just has to move on.

Swearing, sexual remarks and all. Let us explain.

We’re going to take a wild guess and say that the good people at a local Texas-based news station Kris, are not having the best time at the moment.

During a news bulletin about the construction of local bridge, the station’s evening news anchor Stephania Jimenez was rather rudely interrupted by NSFW video of a man whispering “”F*** it, lick it, smell it.”

Oh dear.

A crafty Facebook user captured the embarrassing moment and then uploaded the short 30 second clip for all to see.

You can watch the cringe-inducing moment below:


However Jimenez handled it like a true professional and apologised without skipping a beat.

“We do apologise for that, we had a incident there,” she said.

According to the station communications news director, Paul Alexander, an investigation has been launched immediately (AKA someone is gonna get into tttrrrooouuubbble.)

“We learned that a series of technical and human errors lead to the mistake,” he said.

Speaking of on-air bloopers, Sarah Harris can relate. The Studio 10 host Sarah Harris speaks about the time she swore on live television.

“We have taken swift and appropriate action with the employees who were involved in the broadcast in accordance with our company policies.

“We have also modified our editing workflow and procedures to ensure that mistakes like this cannot happen again.”

So just remember next time when you’re having a bit of an off day, it might be bad, but it’s not, ‘we’ve just played an X-rated sex clip on the evening news’ kinda bad.

Just a little perspective, you know?
