KTLA fired anchor Mark Mester

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.
