TV reporter exits on air, says "F*ck it, I quit"
Well, that’s one way to resign
The Huffington Post reported Tuesday (September 23) that a TV reporter, Charlo Greene, quit her job on air after reading a piece that she did not agree with. She was reporting on a segment on pot legalization on Sunday night.
After her spiel, she suddenly announced, "Everything you’ve heard is why I, the actual owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club, will be dedicating all of my energy toward fighting for freedom and fairness, which begins with legalizing marijuana here in Alaska. And as for this job, well, not that I have a choice but, f*ck it, I quit."
You can imagine how awkward it must have been for the other anchor. The channel, KTVA 11 News posted an apology on their website, saying, "We sincerely apologize for the inappropriate language used by a KTVA reporter during her live presentation on the air tonight. The employee has been terminated."
