Sometimes you may find yourself in a situation where you’ve ‘just gotta to do what you just gotta do’, and such is the case in point with Reporter Charlo Greene who quit on-air recently during KTVA-TV’s 10 p.m. newscast Sunday, revealing herself as the owner of the medical marijuana business Alaska Cannabis Club, which just so happened to be the news story she was reporting on. Awkward much?

Greene had reported on the Alaska Cannabis Club during Sunday night’s broadcast, without revealing her connection to it. At the end of the report, during a live shot, she announced that she was the club’s owner and would be quitting.

“Now 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,” she said. “And as for this job, well, not that I have a choice but, fuck it, I quit.”

And with that, she walked off camera. Leaving the other newscaster in a moment of panic as she made a dramatic exit and in the process creating one of the most shared videos of the next 48 hours on the internet as people rushed to post and share it on Facebook.

The TV channel responded with a statement posted on KTVA’s Facebook page Sunday night, news director Bert Rudman said, “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.”

However, she is not the first News reporter to attempt this in such a dramatic and classic style, she joins the ranks of those brave newscasting souls who have come before her and quit their jobs live on air. For those of you who have given us classic moments of amusement we salute you:

Ms. Wahl’s resignation came on the heels of her colleague Abby Martin’s recent comments in which she voiced her disagreement with certain policies of the Russian government and asserted her editorial independence.

 

Two news co-anchors for a Maine television station surprised viewers and colleagues by quitting on the air, later citing frustration with their management.

 

Marina Shifrin worked for an awesome company that makes news videos. She said “I have put my life into this job, but my boss says quantity, speed and views are what is most important. I believe it’s more important to focus on the quality of the content. When you learn to improve this, the views will come. Here is a little video I made explaining my feelings.”
