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."
