LA anchor Lynette Romero talks about former host Mark Mester

Popular Los Angeles morning anchor Lynette Romero reassured fans about her former co-anchor who was fired after he went rogue on air will do “amazing things” once he moves past his controversial resignation.

TV anchor Mark Mester was let go by KTLA last month after he went off script to blast his own station for the way they handled Romero’s exit from the company.

“I will tell you that Mark and I talk every day,” Romero said on one Facebook live stream Friday. “I respect him, he respects me and our privacy and all that stuff. We’re going to talk about all that stuff at some point. This is not the time or the place, so I know you guys will respect that.

“He’s doing well and taking care of himself and he’s going to do great things, I’m sure because he’s a great person. We’ll always be friends.”

While Romero was humble on Friday about her sudden exit from KTLA last month that spurred Mester’s controversial remarks, she opened up a bit about her departure on the first day with her new station KNBC-TV.

On Monday, she said on the local morning show “Today in LA” that she had “no idea” that the show she taped in mid-September would be her last with KTLA, where she worked for 24 years, amid contract negotiations . It was reported by the Los Angeles Times.

“You know how contract negotiations work — or maybe you don’t — but it’s not fun,” she said, according to the newspaper. “So then I never actually went back… a little over a month, but it feels like forever.”

Romero left his former station without personally saying goodbye to the viewers, which ranked Mester. Instead, another reporter announced that Romero was gone during a brief segment.

During a monologue days after the initial announcement, Mester told her over the air “you didn’t deserve what happened to you.”

“I will start right now by giving you an apology,” Master said to viewers. “What viewers experienced was rude, it was cruel, it was inappropriate, and we are so sorry.”

He was suspended and then fired after the daring mid-air robbery.

Romero’s new home, KNBC, is a rival of her former employer, according to the LA Times.

Mester has not been active on his social media since his ouster.
