Tv Anchor In Affair With Mayor Fails To Report For Work
Mirthala Salinas, the Telemundo TV anchor in Los Angeles involved in an affair with Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, has been fired after she failed to show up for work at a TV station in Riverside, where she had been reassigned after the scandal broke out. She had been suspended with pay for two months by Telemundo's Los Angeles station. Today's (Tuesday) Los Angeles Times reported that crews from a number of stations had gathered outside KVEA in Riverside to cover Salinas's expected arrival but left empty-handed. Mayor Villaraigosa declined to discuss the matter.
