WATCH: Which 702 presenter dropped the f-bomb live on air?

702's Afternoon Drive Host, Joanne Joseph, might be the first news broadcaster to swear on live TV and get away with it!

WARNING: The following clip contains offensive language:

Joanne was among the "Roasters" in the 80-minute comedy fest along with the likes of Skhumba, Kurt Darren and politician Fikile Mbalula.

Joanne, the straight-talking, hard news journalist, showed a lighter side of herself during the show and dropped the f-bomb much to the delight of the audience.

As Joey Rasdien described it, it's cognitive dissonance where it's the last thing one would expect from someone in news! And yes, my mother was watching!

But it was all done in the spirit of the show...
