Hot Mic Catches NBC Affiliate Reporter Angrily Dropping Big Ol’ F-Bomb

An awkward moment occurred Wednesday when NBC’s Detroit affiliate morning show reporter dropped a big, angry “f-bomb” on the air when she did not realize her microphone was hot.

Morning show anchors were attempting to throw over to WDIV reporter Lauren Podell, live at the scene of a fire, but technical difficulties with her earpiece prevented her from being aware of her cue.

After several seconds of silence, Podell’s voice emerged from off-screen: “I don’t have IFB, I don’t know when we’re going, neither does Jim, I can’t get this fucking in there!”

WDIV anchors Evrod Cassimy and Rhonda Walker quickly and repeatedly apologized for Podell’s language.
