Norwegian radio reporter walks out after two-minute rant
The Daily Mail reports Pia Beate Pedersen announced to listeners of public broadcast station NRK that she was 'quitting and walking away' because she 'wanted to be able to eat properly again and be able to breathe'.
Her comments were part of a two-minute diatribe, in which she accused her NRK employers of putting too much pressure on staff.
She capped hoff the rant by refusing to read the news bulleitn, saying there was no news to report.
'Nothing important has happened anyway,' she snapped before walking out.
Ms Pedersen had worked at NRK for 18 months, and station spokesman Oeyvind Werner Oefsti said her on-air rant and sudden resignation came as a total surprise.
NRK covers the capital Oslo and the Ahershus regions.
Her dramatic meltdown was reminiscent of Steven Slater's resignation via evacuation slide from a JetBlue aircraft last month.
