TV reporter quits with on-air profanity

Anyone who has ever had a job has thought about quitting in a blaze of glory.

TV reporter Charlo Greene, a reporter at CBS affiliate KTVA in Anchorage, Alaska, actually went through with the plan.

While reporting on a medical marijuana business, Greene told viewers she owned the business and was quitting TV news to dedicate her life to legalizing marijuana.

She managed to drop an F-bomb before a producer could pull the plug on the live shot gone horribly awry.

"[BLEEP] it, I quit," said Greene in what surely will be her last on-air appearance.

The confused news anchor offered a fumbling apology before collecting her wits and moving on with the news.

That's quite the vocational exit, I must say. I can only imagine security was called to quickly hustle Greene out the door as shocked co-workers looked on.

Whatever happened to giving two weeks notice?
