Reporter quits job with foul-mouthed exit live on air

BIG EXIT: Charlo Greene

A REPORTER quit her job live on air after announcing that she owned a medical marijuana business.

Charlo Greene, who worked for CBS affiliate KTVA-TV in Anchorage, Alaska, said “ F**k it, I quit,” before walking off set.

According to the Alaska Dispatch News, Greene did a report on the Alaska Cannabis Club on the 10 pm news.

At the end of the report, she revealed herself as the owner of the club and said she was quitting her job at the station to devote her time to legalising marijuana in Alaska.

The broadcast cut back to the anchor, who was too stunned to speak.

News director Bert Rudman apologized for the outburst on the KTVA 11 Facebook page, writing: “Dear Viewers,
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.

After quitting, Greene posted an Indiegogo page to raise $5,000 to go toward campaigning for marijuana legislation.

An excerpt from the page reads: “I'm Charlo Greene, the president and CEO of the Alaska Cannabis Club — Alaska's only legal medical marijuana resource.

“I just quit my news reporting job on live TV to announce that I am redirecting all of my energy toward helping to end a failed drug policy that has ruined the lives of far too many Americans.”
