Alaskan newsreader quits live on air in a dramtic fashion

"F**k it I quit": An Alaskan reporter quits live on air in expletive laden rant after she reveals herself to be a cannabis club owner.

Newsreader Charlo Greene shocked viewers by quitting live on air.
American journalist Charlo Greene quit her job live on air in the most dramatic fashion possible whilst reporting on marijuana legalisation during a news piece.
Her expletive laden outburst followed a story on the Alaska Cannabis Club, a "collective" that "connects medical marijuana cardholders in need to medical marijuana cardholders with green" – a business that Greene revealed she was a part owner of.
"Now everything you heard is why I, the actual owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club, will be dedicating all of my energy for fighting for freedom and fairness which begins with legalising marijuana here in Alaska,” the aptly named Greene said.
"And as for this job, well, not that I have a choice but, f--- it, I quit."
The sassy-mouthed reporters actions left her female co-anchor gobsmacked and she only managed to muster a polite, "alright we apologise for that….we'll, we'll be right back".
The Alaskan network, KTVA, took to Twitter to apologise and let viewers know that Greene's contract had been "terminated".
In reaction the maverick reporter also took to social media to share a video titled, Why I Quit and Greene also created a donation page to raise money for medical marijuana reform.
