Veteran NYC news anchor Ernie Anastos, who currently appears on MyFoxNY (channel 5)'s 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. broadcasts, spiced things up last night. Gawker explains, "Perhaps overloaded by transitive small talk between the weather report and a commercial break, Anastos — who once said 'dot cock' on live television — told meteorologist Nick Gregory that 'it takes a tough man to make a tender forecast,' and then, to the utter shock and appall of his co-anchor, Dari Alexander continued, 'Keep fucking that chicken.'" Huh?
Still weird! Last year, WNBC (now NBC New York!)'s Sue Simmons dropped the f-bomb during an off-camera live read promotion (but not during the actual newscast), "What the fuck are you doing?!" She appeared on the next day's broadcast.
