Talk about going out with a bang.
CBS News outgoing president Susan Zirinski reportedly scribbled “I hate my job” on a piece of paper during a meeting and detained her for her colleagues to see, Page Six reported on Thursday.
“There was a meeting of CBS’s corporate budget – it dragged on and on – and at one point Susan wrote on a piece of paper ‘I hate my job’ and just held it over my head in protest,” a source told the exit.
The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday that the 69-year-old Zirinski is about to step down after only two years in office. She is expected to remain in the role until a replacement is announced.
