NRK news anchor makes the headlines. A now ex NRK radio anchor ‘handed in’ her resignation this weekend in an untraditional manner. 38-year-old Pia Beate Pedersen told listeners on yesterday’s live 08:00 news bulletin for Oslo and Akerhus that she was quitting her job in protest at contractual and working conditions. “This is primarily a message to Hans Tore Bjerkaas, my top boss, who I feel is a cool guy. I trust him and see him as being a man of integrity. You must help, Hans Tore, your employees are not happy, at least not here in Østlandssendingen,” reports NTB.

38-year-old Pia Beate Pedersen told listeners on yesterday’s live 08:00 news bulletin for Oslo and Akerhus that she was quitting her job in protest at contractual and working conditions.

“This is primarily a message to Hans Tore Bjerkaas, my top boss, who I feel is a cool guy. I trust him and see him as being a man of integrity. You must help, Hans Tore, your employees are not happy, at least not here in Østlandssendingen,” reports NTB.

A dejected Pedersen accused NRK of abusing its employees and ended her ‘report’ by saying there was no news to read anyway.

Head of NRK Bjerkaas was not available for comment.
