Lynette Romero Gives Update on Former KTLA Anchor Mark Mester

By Kevin Eck 

KNBC morning anchor Lynette Romero gave viewers an update on her former KTLA co-anchor Mark Mester, while doing a Facebook live last week to introduce viewers to her new station.

Romero left KTLA abruptly in September after working there for nearly 24 years. Mester was fired from the Nexstar owned station after he gave an on-air apology for how the station handled Romero’s departure.

Telling viewers everything changes, Romero said Mester is well and that he is taking care of himself. She also said the two will always be friends.


“I know that a lot of you are asking a lot of questions. Why did I leave? How is Mark? All of those things.” she said. “I will tell you that Mark and I talk every day. I’m respecting him. He’s respecting me and our privacy and all those things. We will talk about all these things at some point,” said Romero. “This is not the time or the place, so I know you guys will respect that.”

She joins co-anchor Adrian Arambulo, meteorologist Belen De Leon and traffic anchor Robin Winston this morning on the Los Angeles NBC owned station.

“I don’t want to screw up. I want to do a good job,” she said. “You want to be worthy. I’m going to work really hard for you guys and these guys. Put me in coach. I’m ready.”
