In 2011, shortly after Evrod Cassimy was hired as an anchor and reporter for CBS4, he made news of his own after complaints about a photo of him posing with singer/felon Chris Brown led to the pic's removal from his station bio. Now, he's got a new gig at WDIV in Detroit and a new embarrassing episode: A reporter said "fucking" during a live shot in a newscast he was anchoring. This time around, though, Cassimy is winning praise for how quickly and smoothly he apologized for the gaffe. Live and learn. Here's the hilarious clip.
