justin kraemer_304x200Justin Kraemer has been fired at Wichita NBC affiliate KSNW after he ended Saturday night’s newscast with “let’s get the fuck outta here.”

“I’m embarrassed,” Kraemer told The Wichita Eagle. “I did something extraordinarily unprofessional. It’s something that’s drilled into you from the minute you start in this business to always consider the microphones hot.”

Kraemer, KSNW’s weekend anchor, joined the station in 2008. He previously worked at KSNW “in the late 90’s through 2001,” according to a cached version of his online bio, which has been stripped from the station’s website. The Wichita Eagle reports he has another job lined up.

KSNW General manager Erik Schraderand news director Denise Killian have not responded to multiple requests for comment.
