An employee at a Corpus Christi, Texas, news station has been fired, and others suspended or reprimanded after a live broadcast was interrupted with a vulgar and disturbing audio clip.

“We sincerely regret the error and apologize to our viewers that were watching on Monday evening,” KRIS Communications, an NBC affiliate, wrote in a statement. “We immediately began an investigation of the mistake and how it occurred. We learned that a series of technical and human errors lead to the mistake.”

During a report, the screen cut to black in the middle of the newscast and a male voice could be heard whispering obscenities.

“Smell it, finger it, f— it, lick it, smell it,” the voice says in the video below.

The statement noted that it was a male station reporter’s voice in the audio, but did not identify him.  It did mention that actions were taken, including a termination of one employee as well as a suspension and reprimands to an undisclosed number of employees. Additionally, the station is reviewing its editing workflow to prevent similar future incidents.

The moment was posted to Facebook by a user Korbin Boomer Matthews.
