CONFIRMED! Katy Tur has a Job at WNBC

You read it here first at Olbermann's Ego: Katy Tur is now working for WNBC, as confirmed by New York Magazine.
And 25-year-old Weather Channel reporter Katy Tur is rising up the NBC Universal ranks, now freelancing for WNBC/Channel 4. But we're sure it has nothing to do with her boyfriend being MSNBC's Keith Olbermann.

And uh, the NY Post.
KATY Tur's star keeps rising at NBC Universal, causing some media watchers to ask whether her fatherly boyfriend, MSNBC blabbermouth Keith Olbermann, 50, could be boosting the news cutie's ascension. Tur, 25, who was hired earlier this year by the NBC-owned Weather Channel to chase storms, has started freelancing as a WNBC/Ch. 4 reporter. An MSNBC rep insisted, "Keith has not spoken to anyone about a job at WNBC since 1980. He is delighted that Katy is also working for the Weather Channel." A WNBC flack called Tur "an experienced reporter."

For sucking his little lollipop, (sorry, I just threw up in my mouth), it's the LEAST he can do for her! People, get perspective; nice media job for having sex with Keith Olbermann, folks have done far more for far less.

God bless her and good luck for not getting an STD from Mr. "sleeps with his fans and doesn't wear condoms" Olbermann. (Then again, maybe her job upgrade is because of an STD, just sayin').

Fighting bugs is very important.

Note that it says she has jobs at both The Weather Channel and WNBC. Note the parsing of the disclaimer. He spoke to no one at WNBC. Oh I'm sure that whomever he spoke to was much higher up on the food chain that some low-level flunky at WNBC.

He probably did not speak to anyone. That would be bad for his reputation to get caught doing that. So far, everyone is just assuming that Keith got these jobs for her.

More likely that one of his bosses did, as part of some agreement or favor owed.
