By Kevin Eck 

KTLA anchor Pedro Rivera is signing off from the Los Angeles station today after two years.

“Over the last few months, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about my future,” he wrote on social media. “I have made the extremely difficult decision to leave KTLA. I love this station and Los Angeles. My family is going through exciting new changes and I’ve decided to move closer to home and pursue other opportunities.”

The station posted a video of his co-anchors saying goodbye to him over the weekend. He started working there in 2021 after anchoring at KTXL in Sacramento.


On his social media post, he promised “some BIG announcements” soon.

Before working in Sacramento he was a reporter at KHBS-KHOG in Fort Smith, Ark. He’s also worked at WFSB in Hartford, Conn.
