Lynette Romero will join the KNBC morning newscast Today in LA as an anchor and reporter.
Romero will anchor the weekday newscast from 4 to 7:00 a.m. alongside co-anchor Adrian Arambulo, meteorologist Belen De Leon and traffic anchor Robin Winston. Her first day on-air will be October 10.
“Lynette has the right combination of journalistic experience and genuine warmth that comes across on the air and in person,” said Renee Washington, vice president of News at NBC4. “She is a dynamic anchor with an upbeat approach to help our viewers kick start their day, and I am happy to welcome her to the NBC4 family.”
Romero last worked at KTLA in Los Angeles where she anchored just about every newscast, most recently serving as weekend anchor for its morning newscast. Before that, Romero anchored and reported at KUSA in Denver.
Her KTLA co-anchor Mark Mester was recently fired after apologizing to viewers about how KTLA handled her departure.
