KTVA-TV reporter Charlo Greene gave what the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker calls “the ultimate sign-off” after reporting on efforts in Alaska to legalize marijuana and a medical marijuana business called the Alaska Cannabis Club.

Greene revealed to viewers of the Anchorage, Alaska TV station that she was the owner of the club.

“Everything you heard is why I, the actual owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club, will be dedicating all of my energy to fighting for freedom and fairness, which begins with legalizing marijuana here in Alaska,” Greene said in the Sunday report.

She then gave her startling sign-off.

“And as for this job … well, not like I have a choice, but,” she said, adding, “Fuck it — I quit.”

The station’s website on Monday included an apology from its news director, Bert Rudman. “We sincerely apologize for the inappropriate language used by a KTVA reporter during her live presentation on the air tonight. The employee has been terminated,” the statement said.
