Telemundo Channel 52 Poitical Reporter Mirthala Salinas announces “on air” her boyfriend, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s separation from his wife.
Newscaster Mirthala Salinas and Spanish-language network Telemundo have “mutually agreed to end” her employment with KVEA, according to a statement from the station.
KVEA management said in a statement: “Telemundo-KVEA 52 and Mirthala Salinas have mutually agreed to end our employment relationship effective October 1, 2007. We are not in a position to make any further comment on our discussions with Ms. Salinas surrounding her departure.”
As Flap predicted earlier, Mirthala whose contract expired in three months would NOT be back.
And why should she? Did she not receive a settlement from her employers?
Now, the question is: how much of a settlement did she receive from NBC-Telemundo?
Or is Mirthala content with playing house with the divorcing Mayor Villaraigosa? The Los Angeles Times reports that the Mayor and Salinas are continuing to see each other.
Stay tuned as this story now turns to Mayor Villaraigosa’s financial relationship with Salinas and Los Angeles City lobbyists.
And what about those documents and e-mails from the Mayor that KNBC demanded back in July?
