First introduced to Metafilter in this thread earlier today
, Jennie Stencel served as a traffic reporter for WXII in North Carolina.
The first clue that she'd be an off-the-wall personality came when she performed the traffic as a white girl rap
. She went on to comment on-air, sometimes making her co-anchors a wee bit uncomfortable, on little Adolf Hitler's birthday cake
). And reality TV's Duggar family
. And a nudist church
. Visiting the gynecologist.
She did some on-location reports. Like this one with a psychic
, and this one begging for a raise
. She threw a faux temper tantrum
on air. She walked off set once
, but she came back the next day
Beginning in February 2010, she started alluding to difficult contract talks
with the station. She was let go in May
. The station pasted together a farewell montage
(awkward!). There is, of course, a Facebook page
dedicated to getting her back on air.
She has gone back to improv, performing at the Idiot Box in Greensboro, NC
