Fired Bismarck anchor goes national

The Bismarck anchorman fired after opening his first-ever broadcast with a pair of obscenities will appear on CBS' "The Late Show" with David Letterman Wednesday night.

"The Late Show" announced via its Twitter account Tuesday night that it would feature fired reporter A.J. Clemente on its Wednesday night show.

While in New York, Clemente also will be making an appearance on NBC's "Today" show Wednesday morning.

Clemente was put on suspension by employer KFYR-TV following the Sunday broadcast and fired Monday.

Video of Clemente's broadcast immediately began circulating on social media sites. Many of his Twitter followers jumped to his defense and called for the station to rehire him.
