It began innocently enough.
“Today” weather guy Al Roker did his standard throw to local and then….
At flagship WNBC, Chris Cimino failed to pick up his cue – instead blathering on about something or other, in the course of which, he dropped an F-bomb.
“He’s a person that’s passed on, too. It’s just a weird fucking thing, it’s just strange,” Cimino was heard saying, as a weather graphic filled the screen.
After another couple seconds of blather, he was abruptly cut off by the familiar NBC chimes, followed by about twenty seconds of silence over a graphic depicting the ten-day forecast.
When the feed cut back to the national show, Roker breezily said “And that’s your latest weather. Savannah?”
Take a look.
So far, he’s still working at the station.
