A Fargo television host claims Grand Forks Public Schools Superintendent Larry Nybladh called him a profanity following a television interview that aired Wednesday on Valley News Live broadcasts in Grand Forks and Fargo.

Nybladh appeared on the program “6:30 Point of View,” hosted by Chris Berg, and discussed a proposed tax increase by the school district. After playing the interview, conducted via telephone and video, Berg played an audio recording of what he said was Nybladh calling him a crude word after the interview ended. The word was edited out of the audio recording.

Berg also aired a video of a conversation with Nybladh via speakerphone during which Nybladh did not confirm what he said, but said the comment was made after the interview finished and not meant for broadcast.

Nybladh could not be reached Wednesday evening for comment.

Valley News Live is broadcast on KXJB-TV in Grand Forks and KVLY-TV in Fargo.
