FTVLive was the FIRST to tell you about firing of KSNW Anchor Justin Kraemer back on December.
Kraemer was fired when he ended the newscast with the line "Let's get the fuck out of here." The station fired him and a Colorado station that was getting ready to hire him, pulled the offer from the table.
Now, Kreamer wants to head to Hollywood and he's asking for donations on the Internet to make it happen.
The fired Anchor has set up a GoFundMe page and is seeking $10,000 to get him to Tinsel Town.
On the GoFundMe page Kraemer writes "Do I deserve your help? No. Not really. My career going up in flames was pretty much entirely my fault. But this is America, dammit! Handing money to people for silly reasons is part of what makes this nation the greatest on Earth."
Kreamer also says that by giving him money, you will be pissing some evil broadcasting people. "If this works, it would infuriate some truly evil people in broadcasting. Who am I to prevent you from the joy you may feel by sticking it to The Man with a donation?" he writes.
But, he admits this is mainly an act of desperation, "if it makes you feel better, I’m very embarrassed to be using a fundraiser as part of the move. But after a career in tv news, six months of unemployment, and no severance from my last employer, I’m pretty broke and am in no position to stop anyone who wants to help me," Kraemer says.
Ahhhh....It's America grand?
