Fort Myers CBS affiliate WINK was scheduled to do a weather update before Let’s Make a Deal this morning, but instead someone dropped an F bomb while insulting “these people.”

“How many times do I have to tell these people?” said the voice, which turned out to be Jim Farrell’s. “Shut the fuck up.”

Farrell came on at the bottom of the hour and apologized to viewers. “By the way,” said the chief meteorologist. “I apologize for a word I may have…I did whisper, you may have heard earlier around ten o’clock. Unintentional. I thought I was off-camera. Won’t happen again.”
