Lauren Podell, a local NBC news reporter in Detroit, Michigan, was forced to resign yesterday - after word got out that she allegedly used RACIST language to colleagues.
Lauren allegedly told a co-worker the following, “I’m tired of reporting on these n*****s killing each other in Detroit.”
Yesterday the local NBC affiliate released a company-wide email that was also released on Twitter by Huffington Post front page editor, Philip Lewis.
The email came from the news station’s Vice President and General Manager, Marla Drutz. It read as follows:
I wanted to let you know that Lauren Podell has resigned from WDIV effective immediately. Lauren asked me to convey the following: “During my time at WDIV I have created many friendships that I will continue to cherish." If you receive any media inquiries please forward them to Jamie or me. Thanks.
