Veteran news anchor Sue Simmons says she's "truly sorry" for blurting out a curse word on live television.

WNBC-TV's Sue Simmons dropped the bomb when the wrong footage was aired as she did a teaser for the 11 p.m. newscast on Monday.

The screen went momentarily blank following the gaffe.

Later, during the newscast, Simmons apologized for using "a word that many people find offensive. It was a mistake I made and I'm truly sorry."
