Sportscaster fired from TV station after 20 years for wishing departing colleagues good luck live on-air

A veteran TV sportscaster has been fired after he offered best wishes to colleagues who were leaving the station while live on-air.

On two occasions, Joe Swift thanked his co-workers on KNOP-TV in North Platte, Nebraska earlier this month.

Several days later, bosses called him in to say he was fired after he supposedly gave the impression that his friends were forced out of the company.
