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."

Chris Schauble needs to get off his pompous ass. They should just get rid of him...No one with notice.

He mouthed it. Less of a "bomb" and more of a "fizzle"

Thank you    

Are you people even watching the clip before passing judgement? He didn't EVEN SAY ANYTHING. It was mouthed, and not very clearly at that.

Over.reaction. TMZ. FAIL.

WHo cares - the video crew should have gotten their A$$es chewed out - I watch Chris every morning and I think he makes that news crew what it is - credible - it is him and a bunch of Hooter girls reporting the news to us - he has kept it pretty together wiht that.

Can't blame the anchor one bit. I'd be pissed too, someone on the tech crew was slacking.

Don't like the video? Don't waste your time commenting it. I rather watch this than listen to another story about Lindsay.

Of course, the TMZ report is WRONG. I just checked...Chris Schauble is NOT an NBC News Anchor -- he's an Anchor for the local NBC Affiliate, KNBC. There is a difference, but for TMZ to recognize it, I guess, is too much to ask.
