    Smile what does "one" mean?

    hi there,
    The BBC has been forced to apologise to viewers after one its weathermen was caught giving the finger live on air.

    I don't get "one" in the above sentence, can anyone explain to me? Or should it be "one of its weathermen?

    Thank you.

    It should be "one of".
