You gotta see the shocked looks on the co-anchors faces when this Alaska reporter quits on air. Classic.

An Alaskan tv reporter quit live on air, uttering “Fuck it I quit” before storming off the set. After doing a report about medical marijuana in Alaska, the reporter went off script and abruptly quit.
However, it’s been revealed that reporter, Charlo Greene is the actual owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club. From the Alaska Dispatch News:
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.
In reality, this wasn’t a spur of the moment decision. In fact, it was a clever publicity stunt that generated free marketing and advertising for her marijuana business, the Alaska Cannabis Club.
