KTLA anchor Mark Mester has been fired by the network after he called out the station while on the air. Mark‘s longtime colleague Lynette Romero recently left her job at the network after nearly 24 years at the station.

Sam Rubin announced her exit with the following statement: “After nearly 24 years, Lynette Romero, our friend Lynette, has decided to move on from anchoring our weekend morning news.
