Ktla News Anchor Mark Mester Fired After Off-Script Tribute to Former Colleague Lynette Romero
The newsroom drama at local Los Angeles TV stations showed no signs of cooling off Thursday, as Mark Mester, weekend co-anchor at Ktla, was fired a week after management suspended him for showing support for his departed colleague Lynette Romero, TheWrap has confirmed.

“Mark Mester is no longer employed by Ktla,” a spokesperson for the station’s parent company, Nexstar, told TheWrap. “As this is a personnel matter, we will decline further comment.”

Mester was let go Thursday afternoon, two Ktla insiders told TheWrap. General manager Janene Drafs informed the newsroom of the firing during a brief meeting, according to the Los Angeles Times, which first reported the firing.

Mester didn’t immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
