KTLA fired anchor Mark Mester days after he was suspended for going off-script
and getting down on how the station dealt
with the acquiescence of his long-term
co-anchor Lynette Romero, The Hollywood Journalist has learned.
Station head supervisor Janene Drafs declared
that Mester had been fired during a newsroom meeting on Thursday,
the Los Angeles Times revealed.
On Sept. 14, KTLA reported that Romero had chosen to continue on
after almost 24 years at the station and seek after another open door,
regardless of the station trusting she would use whatever remains of her vocation with them.
