(PCM) The video which shows Alaskan TV reporter Charlo Greene resigning from her position at the Anchorage CBS-affiliate KTVA Channel 11 in quite the colorful way has gone viral.
Greene was reporting on a story about the legalization of marijuana in Alaska when she made a very surprise move by revealing her involvement with a cannabis club (she’s the owner) and her passion about decriminalizing pot in the state.
After revealing her involvement with the cannabis club, she said “Well, not that I have a choice, but f**k it, I quit”. It was quite apparent that the sudden resignation live on the air was surprise, as the look on the other reporters face behind the news desk was priceless.
The news director for KTVA, Burt Rudman, posted the following apology on the network’s Facebook page:
We sincerely apologize for the inappropriate language used by a KTVA reporter during her live presentation on the air Sept. 21. The employee is terminated.
News Director – KTVA 11 News”
Green claims the reason behind her sudden departure was to redirect all of her energy toward helping put an end to a failing drug policy that has ruined the lives of far too many Americans and claims that she quit in such a fashion as a way to draw more attention to the issue.
