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."

If he was anywhere but LA the next WTF he uttered would be about the puny size of his unemployment check...

Schauble's the consummate professional, I don't blame him. He's the best thing Channel 4 has going for it these days - the future of TV news in LA, give him a break. Thank god that Jennifer Bjorklund is gone, now SHE was inappropriate - on the eyes!

Real nice...I've seen that happen alot to newscasters but somehow they are capable of downplaying and redirecting. This dude obviously is not able to handle techno errors.

I was watching the segment as it actually happened live. It wasn't a big deal, not sure why this is being blow out of proportion. Happened so quickly you wouldn't have even notice it. If you're a loyal viewer, you know this has happened plenty of times to him, where the production crew posts the wrong footage to the story he's reading. So its the production crew's fault for not being on their game, not Chris'.

If you are disturbed by someone hinting at a swear word, don`t come in the Province of Quebec in Canada and do not learn French. We have no such CENSORSHIP, some of the network are a little more afraid because old people watch them but anyone 60 and younger don`t mind if we hear swearing or see a boob, look at this news clip from a Radio-Canada newscast: http://www.radio-canada.ca/Medianet/2010/RDI2/RDIEnDirect201006241130_1.asx
