The Bismarck, N.D., anchorman who made national headlines after he was fired his first day on the job for muttering two expletives to begin his broadcast is working at a beach bar, the CapeGazette reports.

It's the same summer job in Dewey Beach, Del., that A.J. Clemente has had the last two years, the source reports.

“At the end of summer I’m ready to go see where the next challenge is,” the 25-year-old aspiring newsman told CapeGazette.

Clemente briefly basked in a national spotlight as he sought a new job, appearing on "Today" MSNBC's "Morning Joe" and "LIVE with Kelly and Michael."

He told CapeGazette he was surprised by the initial support. "From Lauer to Letterman, they all said it could have happened to anyone.”

Here he is on the "Late Show with David Letterman":
