An open mic at D.C.’s WAMU picked up an off-air conversation that included the f-word, reports DCRTV (scroll down), a website that covers Washington and Baltimore TV and radio. American University made two on-air apologies, citing “technical difficulties.” Station spokeswoman Kay Summers told the site’s Dave Hughes, “The matter has been dealt with internally through discussions with those involved. Not our finest hour, to be sure, but mistakes happen.” The expletive aired during Bob Edwards Weekend.
