(Undated) — An anchorman in Finland lost his job after he decided to enjoy a cold one on the air. The “Daily Mail” is reporting that Kimmo Wilska was fired after he was seen drinking a beer on live television. Wilska’s station, YLE TV, was showing pre-recorded footage when they cut back to the studio just in time to catch him taking a swig. Wilska claims he was just trying to give the station’s crew a laugh, but his bosses have decided there was nothing funny about the incident. Footage of Wilska’s error has been a hit on YouTube, while a Facebook page supporting the unemployed news anchor has also been established.
