Meet Keith Olbermann's Girlfriend, New York's Newest TV Reporter

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: The New York Observer's Felix Gillette reports that Tur is not joining the CW as an anchor but has accepted a position as a freelance reporter:

The Media Mob caught up with a CW11 spokesperson Jessica Bellucci this morning. According to Ms. Bellucci, Ms. Tur joined the station several weeks ago as a "freelance reporter," working on general assignment.

"She got the job on her own merit," said Ms. Bellucci.

ORIGINAL ITEM: Page Six reports today that Keith Olbermann's live-in girlfriend, 24-year old Katy Tur, has been offered a news anchor position at New York station CW11:

We hear Olbermann's live-in girlfriend, Katy Tur, 24, just landed a news-anchor job on CW11, allegedly with his help. Many are whispering about her qualifications, considering she once professed she didn't go to journalism school and she's simply been referred to as a "freelance cable producer" in New York and LA.

You can view Katy's online video portfolio at Current.com, which hosts tapes of her mostly reporting from various New York locations (sometimes even on camera), or view photos of her here (thanks to commenters CaptainHowdy and KOisGod for pointing them out).
