Brittany Murphy has a career as a TV news reporter if her acting work dries up - one of her news ideas has become a hot topic in America.

The JUST MARRIED star worked for news show ACCESS HOLLYWOOD for a day as part of a feature for glossy magazine MARIE CLAIRE, and she impressed producers by hitting them with a top idea.

She explains, "I pitched a story that's now a contender for sweeps (November).

"They didn't know about radio man - a New York character who shows up on movie sets all the time. So now they're doing a whole piece on him for sweeps. I thought it was really cool!"
