KATC reporter uses expletive on air, disappears from station's site

Lafayette's local ABC affiliate KATC-TV had quite a slip-up get on the air when reporter Louis David could be heard saying the f-word.
The video that aired apparently was an outtake, as David counted down and started over his report.
After the flub, anchor Hoyt Harris apologized and continued the report himself.
David's bio no longer appears on KATC's site. There's no word yet if his job has been terminated or if he has resigned.
As of Dec. 11 the video of David is no longer available on YouTube, so we removed the link. Apparently KATC had the video removed, citing a copyright violation.
