She was the co-anchor from Bismarck, seen around the world. Van Tieu, the weekend anchor at KFYR in Bismarck, has left North Dakota to return to her native San Francisco Bay Area. Tieu counted A.J. Clemente among her co-anchors at the station — for all of 30 minutes. You know the story by now. He uttered an expletive during the first few seconds of his first newscast back in April, was fired for it, then took his story to “Today” and “Late Show with David Letterman.” At last check Clemente was bartending in Delaware. Tieu, who’d been with KFYR for 8 months, departs the station without another TV job lined up.
I miss you. Going back home to the west coast. #roadtrip starts now! Bye Bismarck!
