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."

News anchor seems like a total jerk if he did, in fact, mouth off such profanity on live tv. It reflects his attitude towards others with total disrepect. Big deal, if there was a mix up. It happens! Just go with the flow and carry on; it would show much more class.

Schauble is awesome and a pro. He was reading off script and the editorial assistant or producer f'd up.

You shouldn't be that impulsive and unprofessional on air

Using restraint is what seperates the professional from the
non-professional

The anchor must have had issues prior and it & boiled up.
Should not have gotten to this point where have the managers been?
