A Norwegian radio journalist quit on the air today after complaining about her job and saying she would not read the day’s news because “nothing important has happened” anyway.
Pia Beathe Pedersen accused her employers at the regional radio station of public broadcaster NRK of putting too much pressure on the staff.
She said in the live broadcast that she was “quitting and walking away” because she “wanted to be able to eat properly again and be able to breathe”.
She ended her nearly two-minute announcement by saying there would not be any news on Saturday.
The reporter had worked at NRK for 18 months. NRK spokesman Oeyvind Werner Oefsti said her actions were a surprise.
