Alaska TV reporter quits on air to promote pot

ANCHORAGE — A reporter for an Alaska TV station revealed on the air that she owns a medical-marijuana business and was quitting her job to advocate for the drug.

After reporting on the Alaska Cannabis Club on Sunday night’s broadcast, KTVA’s Charlo Greene identified herself as owner of the business and said she would be devoting all her energy to fighting for “freedom and fairness.” She then used an expletive to quit her job, and walked off-camera.

In a statement on KTVA’s website, news director Bert Rudman apologized for Greene’s “inappropriate language” and said she was terminated.

Alaska voters decide Nov. 4 whether to legalize recreational pot. Measure 2 would be similar to Washington and Colorado’s legalization laws.

Here’s the YouTube video of the reporter quitting on the air. Be aware that she uses an expletive during her “report.”
