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.4. I've mastered the ability to contort my body into a position that makes me appear much skinner in front of the camera than I actually am.5. I hate the right side of my face.6. I'm frightened of old people and I refuse to do stories involving them or the places they reside.7. Happy, fluffy, rainbow stories about good things make me depressed.8. I've taken naps in the news car.9. If you ramble and I deem you unnecessary for my story, I'll stop recording but let you think otherwise.10. I've stolen mail and then put it back. (maybe)
The original post was only up for a few hours before Shea was asked to take it down. She complied... for a while. Eventually, she put it back up with a note about transparancy and freedom of speech. It seems her bosses weren't really into that, because they gave her the boot.
@AndrewKirell If you want to add a bit more candor to your article...I was "terminated without cause" for said post.— Shea Allen (@SheaMallen27) July 29, 2013
Other than the mail thing (that's a felony, right??), they aren't so bad! Did she deserve to get fired? Comments are open.
What I Do, Job-wise: So. Much. Other than playing on-air every day (and on DO YOU HATE IT? Sunday nights), you might get an e-mail response from me if you write in asking to know the name of a song or whether we're looking for interns. I'm all over the place, like a ninja, but less stealthy.
