Yes, Katy Tur finally has a job


And you have no idea how many strings Keith Olbermann's Ego had to pull to get her the gig but Keith Olbermann had absolutely nothing to do with it. No, Katy got her gig at WNBC solely on her talents. And it's just a coincidence that the new station she's working for has the letters N-B-C in the title. There is absolutely no connection between WNBC and MSNBC/NBC at all. How dare anyone suggest otherwise (okay you can suggest it but The Ego will deny it).

I'm so thrilled to know that the recession hasn't impacted Katy's job prospects whatsoever. I'm sure all the people who've been laid off at WNBC so Katy could get a job there are too.

Please post the link so we know where you got your information, Keith's Ego. It's not that we don't trust you or anything, you see....

Keith Olbermann's Ego said...

A good journalist never reveals their sources Marinara. But it is 100% true. You should know by now that The Ego is always right.

If screwing that hairy cheatin' blubbery ton-of-fun that is Keith Olbermann ain't "payin' ones' dues" I don't know what is! What's shocking is that it took her this long to make it to the big time.

(I would think struggling as a stringer for three years has to be a lot safer than sleeping with a guy who doesn't wear a condom when screwing his fans. Just sayin')

Again, I rest my case. Congrats Katy, you earned it:

Huffington Post put up a blog post about the vacationing Keith, I think in an effort to calm down the masses. What's funny is that they cropped his picture, which makes him look a little less fat and old. Most of the comments want Lawrence O'Donnel to get his own show---I agree, I would definately watch.

I'm confused, Marcia. I don't see anything about Katy's new job at the baseball blog. Just a picture of Keith sitting on his....oh, I'll take a wild guess....his sister's porch!

Katy and WNBC info, but nothing offical.

Loved the comments from the industry insiders at that board. They think she blows. Having seen her work, I'd agree with them and say that indeed, sucking and blowing do appear to be her primary talent.

Mean Girls suck. said...

Stop being mean to Katy. She lives in New York with Keith. Where do you want her to work at? Idaho? I'm sure that her being hired there has nothing to do with him whatsoever. She's got experience.

Marcia x3 said...

"Mean Girls Suck"---Hello! Is that you Keith?! Welcome to your ego!

Nothing like Sleeping Your Way to The Top said...

You wanna know what mean is? Taking a job from a far more qualified person who has spent years trying to get anywhere in this industry. Taking a job away from someone who is struggling to make ends meet in NYC. Taking a job away from someone who has a family to support. That's mean.

LK said...

I think it's mean of Keith to put her in these places where she is clearly out of her depth. That she agrees to it tells me two things: 1) if he doesn't, she's history and he knows it and b) she's so ambitious that she will do anything to get ahead (pun intended) in the business. It worked for Julie Chen after all.

Say it ain't so Marcia Marcia EGO. It's starting to appear on the web, as of now that you are being investigated, thus your disappearence from the no rated show of your's, for being a pedophile because Skanky Katy was under age when her daddy sold her to you.

Marcia, LK, Marcia, LK what little whine Ego do with rating's like this. Who that's right, look for another 17 year old girl and take her to baseball card show's since no one but you 2 clowns are watching the EGO. BAD EGO BAD. Leave those underage girls alone. And get to work defending that Messiah of your's and no it's not Murky Merkle I'm talking about, LOL.

MSNBC slipped to fourth place in total day A25-54 demo viewers. The network's most popular show, Countdown with Keith Olbermann, is down 11% year-over-year; second in Total Viewers, third in the A25-54 demo. July 2009 was Countdown's lowest month in A25-54 viewers since Dec. '07. (Olbermann was off 7 of the 20 days of the ratings period).

marinara said...

Thanks, Anon #1, but I couldn't find any video of her at 4 NY's site. And the last person in that thread posted an MSNBC video, which I believe he thought was Katy, but was actually Melissa Rehberger(?)

Nice try, Anon #2. FTVLive.com wants money to look at their shit. Just not that important.

LK:
You think she's history if he doesn't keep her employed? She's nothing without him, and she knows it. She may or may not be the type of person who would "do anything" to get ahead, but she will still reach a point where her on screen talents will not carry her any further--not without some vast improvement. She's got a long way to go before she can cut it with the big dogs.

I recall an anchorwoman many years ago by the name of Jessica Savitch. She was the same type of person that you believe Katy to be. Slept around to get favors, and worked her way up the ladder by who she palled around with, or stabbed in the back, and not by her own hard work and experience in the business. Look what happened to her. Karma can be a terrible thing. (Sorry to bring that up, Keith!) I would not wish that terrible fate on Katy, or anyone of course, but Ms. Tur would be wise to remember the old adage what goes around comes around.

Who the hell is Julie Chen?

FTVLive has been telling you how WNBC tried to get NBC News New York bureau reporters to work at the local station.

That lasted only one day, when Mike Taibbi reported for the station's 5 o'clock news two weeks ago. Last Thursday and Friday it was supposed to be Ron Allen's turn, but it never happened. FTVLive told you that the AFTRA union was not happy with the arrangement, as the local reporters are union and the network's are not.

Now we hear that last Friday, WNBC general manager Tom O'Brien hired Keith Olbermann's girlfriend to help fill the void. The 25 year old Katy Tur first reported on the 5 o'clock news. It's not clear if she is filling in for the summer or full time. But many NBC insiders think she is not ready for such a biog market.

Julie Chen married the head of CBS--Les Moonves--she broke up his first marriage. She's had tons of plastic surgery (seriously, google Julie Chen and plastic surgery--the difference is remarkable). Now she's preggers with his kid--to seal the deal. No one takes her seriously either, nor should they.


And speaking of not taking someone seriously, could we get a translator in here for the crazy Anonymous hater who constantly posts gibberish? Sheesh no wonder the GOP is falling apart with "supporters" like him.

LK said...

Oh and forgot to answer this part of Marinara's post: I think she's highly useful to him in the respect that he likes to mention he's "normal" by having a gf, just like he's using his niece and nephew now to present himself as a "family man"--it makes him seem more normal. Or maybe it's a case of him being blackmailed into it because he's scared of her telling what she knows if he doesn't. I do think he's being used but I think he's using her too. Whatever, they both richly deserve the other.

I just think there is some reason he's willing to make himself (and her) look like a fool within the industry (and on the gossip pages) with this kind of thing. And whatever that reason it is, it's a doozy.

Notice that this isn't out there anywhere, the usual gossip columns (Gawker, Daily Intel, etc) aren't carrying it. Probably because they've felt the wrath of Olbermann (and the NBC publicists) in the past.

It's sad really said...

They do deserve each other, both sold their integrity a long time ago. He used to have a really good news show that didn't veer to the left or the right and called BS on both sides equally. Then he decided to become the liberal O'Reilly and sold out any integrity he had as a result. Don't get me wrong, I loved the GOP bashing because they deserved it and then some but he should have restyled himself as a commentator, not as a anchor. Now he's just desperate for ratings and will do or say anything to get them, just like his buddy Bill-O.

marinara said...

Gawker doesn't care what Keith's Ego thinks of them, so go drop them a tip w/links.

flowergirl said...

Well, one thing's for sure. She's following in Keith's footsteps.
Jumping from job to job to job to job.
How many jobs did Keith have by the time he turned 25?

LK said...

At least Keith had some actual talent once upon a time.

Birthers know no bounds said...

But where either of them born here? Are they "real Americans"? Where are their birth certificates?
