The story was broadcast on the NBC "Today" show this morning.

Jeremy Kappell was let go this week from WHEC-TV for using a racial slur on the air.

This morning, celebrity "Today" show Weatherman Al Roker tweeted support for Kappell saying he should be given the opportunity to apologize.

The station that fired Kappell says their decision is final.
