WWE SmackDown anchor's next stop? (Credit: New York Daily News) - 31st January 2008

PHILADELPHIA - The TV news anchor fired after her skirmish with New York City cops has been offered a job with World Wrestling Entertainment, a Web site reported Wednesday.

Stunning brunette Alycia Lane, 35, has been offered an on-camera job for WWE, her disk jockey boyfriend, Chris Booker, said on his radio show, according to

But WWE did not confirm that, the Web site noted.

In another development, the anchor's lawyer said in court papers that Lane would sue Philadelphia's KYW-TV over her Jan. 7 dismissal.

The job reportedly paid $700,000 a year.

Lane's arrest last month capped a string of public embarrassments for the newswoman, who shed tears on-air with "Dr. Phil" McGraw over her divorce and sent photos of herself in a bikini to NFL Network anchor Rich Eisen.

Eisen's wife intercepted the pictures and reported Lane to gossip columnists.

Lane faces an April 3 hearing in the assault on a female police officer in Manhattan, a charge she denies.

Cops said she yelled, "I am a reporter, you ... dyke."

Lane's lawyer Paul Rosen did not immediately return a phone message yesterday.
