KABC Anchor Marc Brown Fact Checks Fox LA Over Richie Valens Tweet

By Kevin Eck 

KABC anchor Marc Brown played fact checker to a tweet sent by Fox owned station KTTV this weekend.

Brown responded to a tweet sent about a local post office being named after the late musician Richie Valens. But instead of Valens, KTTV used a photo of actor Lou Diamond Phillips.

For those not old enough to remember, Phillips played Valens in the 1987 film La Bamba.


Brown replied to the tweet with a simple sentence, “That’s Lou Diamond Phillips.”
