Charlo Greene, a reporter on KTVA in Alaska, quit live on-air on Sunday night (September 21) after coming clean as the owner of a medical marijuana business.
She had been reporting on the Alaska Cannabis Club without incident, but at the end of the segment she suddenly revealed that she was actually in charge of the club… and would be quitting her newsroom job to focus all of her energy on the legalisation of the drug.
She said: “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. And as for this job, well, not that I have a choice but, f**k it, I quit.”
Back in the main studio, the main anchor was more than a little stuck for how best to proceed.
She is probably the only black woman in Alaska….
At least she quit for a good cause..#sparkup #420
