Reporter Reveals WAAY too Much

Reporter Shea Allen of WAAY-TV got fired because of what she said in her blog.  Here's a few samples.

1. I've gone bra-less during a live broadcast and no one was the wiser.
2. My best sources are the ones who secretly have a crush on me.
3. I am better live when I have no script and no idea what I'm talking about.

Gee, she could be on MSNBC.

9. If you ramble and I deem you unnecessary for my story, I'll stop recording but let you think otherwise.

With regard to #1, I guessed it.  She's darn good-looking for the Huntsville market.

Clearly, they have an image problem!

Happy Fourth of July!

What can be more emblematic of America's Independence than beauteous Kate Upton?

Isn't America great and blessed?
