KAKE apologizes for inappropriate language in live broadcast

Posted: Updated:

On behalf of KAKE News, we wish to apologize that one of our reporters used inappropriate language that was broadcast during severe weather on all our platforms. 

We are deeply sorry for the incident. It happened in the heat of the moment and that is not an excuse. Appropriate action will be taken. 

"We consider such an act very inappropriate and again deeply sorry that the  incident happened," News Director Anthony Maisel said. "We value our viewers and again, in the heat of the moment it just happened."

Our reporter is being called back immediately and action will be taken. Again, our sincere apologies.
