...everyone startes somewhere...and being a veteran broadcaster, I can tell you-the live mike WILL get you at least once....(or in my case, ummmm "several")....like first year broacasting school students making their first attempt
Yep, one of the vet on air personalities at Lite Mix 99, a bit before Iworked for th' moonstah Clear Channel, got busted for some open-mic cussing while he was trying to record a voice track....
Shortly after his arrest, Phillip Garrido, the monster who kidnapped Jaycee Lee Dugard, was being held in jail a few miles from here. Garrido asked a news anchor from our local station to come and do an interview. Right before the interview began, the newscaster and camera man were caught on an open MIC saying what a big boost this was going to give their careers. It was SO insensitive and tacky! Oh-- and years later, the anchor's still stuck in Sacto doing small time stuff.
