Ooops. It's something that I am always concerned about. Are the mics still on?

When Dale and I are on the air, I am the one in control of the buttons and controls. I am a freak about making sure that the mics are off at all times when we are not "on air." In TV, the anchors are at the mercy of the engineers in the control room.

This young anchor learned the hard way that you have to always be mindful that the mics may be "hot." It was his first day -- and unfortunately, his last.

For those that don't appreciate the beauty of the f-bomb, you may want to just take my word for it. The rest of you, turn it up because he whispers it.
