NBC Anchor Drops 'WTF' Bomb on Live TV

7/8/2010 2:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

An NBC news anchor in L.A. was so pissed off this morning about an on-air mix-up -- that he turned to his crew and mouthed the words, "What the f*ck?!" ... on LIVE television!


It all went down when Chris Schauble started reading a report about Jaycee Dugard, the woman who was kidnapped and held for 18 years.

Problem is ... the production crew ran a video showing Abby Sunderland -- the teenage sailor who went missing for just a couple of days.

Schauble was furious -- check out the footage to see his reaction.

NBC L.A. tells TMZ: "This morning one of our morning anchors mouthed an inappropriate word on air.  It was inadvertent and we regret the error."

lol, kind of funny actually. Looked like an honest mistake and he almost looks like he was joking around with someone. I am sure he got his ass chewed though.

In LA? Sure he didn't mouth the words "harvey levin can't marry in California." cuz only Prejean can get married..in opposite marrige. Carrie and most of California are correct...TMZ is wrong and same marriage is wrong and vile.

Why is this even a story. Schauble had a right to be pissed. They DID f-up.

Agree with TMZ site being slower after the revamp. Keep it simple, TMZ. If the record isn't broken, don't try to fix.
