FOX News Hires Blonde As “Journalist”

Courtney_Friel_02.jpg

Our brother-blog, TVNewser, has gone horn-dog post-wild over FNC’s new hire, Courtney Friel. She’s introduced as a journalist, which we think is super-cute. Hosting the World Poker Tour is way more fun than doing all that boring news stuff!

And here’s her big tip for all you budding journos out there:

buy the photographers beer to entice them to shoot your standups and edit packages .I ended up with a fabulous resume tape!

Or rather, a reel shot by drunks, who would comprise her fan base. She also tells Maxim readers that “girls should use their looks.”

Her interests include Fun, Sun, Beach and learning to spell.
