Now, is this really the best way to quit a job? Stick around for the priceless look on the other anchor’s face:

Don’t worry, as Greene already has another gig. From the Alaska Dispatch News:
Reporter Charlo Greene quit on-air during KTVA-TV’s 10 p.m. newscast Sunday, revealing herself as the owner of the medical marijuana business Alaska Cannabis Club and telling viewers that she would be using all of her energy to fight for legalizing marijuana in Alaska.
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.
Verdict? A crass stunt as she knew her resignation would generate tons of free publicity for the Alaska Cannabis Club.
KTVA in Alaska has since apologized for the on-air f-bomb:
Viewers, we sincerely apologize for the inappropriate language used by a KTVA reporter on the air tonight. The employee has been terminated.
