Chris Schauble says WTF live on NBC, Los Angeles

A good move for Chris since being demoted by KNBC News last year. Guess it took a while for his contract to run its course.

Anchor Frank Buckley (right) is scaling back his hours on KTLAs morning newscast and Chris Schauble (far right), most recently an anchor-reporter with KNBC, is taking his place in the early half of the show.

Starting next Monday, Ill no longer be anchoring the 5-7am hours of the KTLA Morning News and a new guy will be in the anchor chair, Buckley announced in a blog post today on KTLAs website. I was asked to fill in on the 5 and 6am broadcasts on a temporary basis after the departure of our friend Emmett Miller in October. We thought it would last a month or two. Its now March.

Buckley will continue appearing on the newscast between 7 and 10 a.m.

Schauble has been anchoring KNBCs weekend evening newscasts and working as a reporter throughout the week.

I met Chris last year at the Los Angeles Marathon Expo at Dodger Stadium. The Expo will be coming up next week and will look out for him there. I do know he is running the marathon this year.

Now, if we can ONLY get Elita Loresca to make the move.

Update:

I understand that Chris will not be running the Los Angeles Marathon this year due to an injury. But, here is video of Chris competing at the 2010 Ford Ironman Triathlon World Championship in Kona, Hawai.

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa Watch: Ana Garcia Spurned Reporter?

Flap reported previously on the confrontation of KNBC Channel 4 television reporter Ana Garcia and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa last Friday. She asks the Mayor directly to supply his public records which were requested by Garcia and KNBC News weeks ago and which have been blocked by his attorneys.

The transcript is here.

Now, remember it was Ana Garcia (who previously was Los Angeles City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo’s communication director) who reported a piece for KNBC when the Villar-Salinas scandal first broke. KNBC is owned by the parent company NBC Universal who also owns Telemundo where Mirthala Salinas is a suspended reporter.

Ana Garcia’s first piece is here.

The video is here.

The transcript is here.

If you recall the first piece was regarding the Mayor shacking up with Mirthala in her Valley condominium prior to Rosa Park’s funeral. In fact, he stayed so long that he had to fly to the funeral via a private jet paid for by a major campaign contributor and former employer, Ameriquest Corporation. Ana Garcia and KNBC requested the Mayor’s calendar and public papers, including e-mails from his Blackberry during this time.

Mirthala Salinas’ condominium in Studio City according to KNBC

The Mayor’s stonewalling and unwillingness to forward KNBC his papers and e-mails set up Friday’s confrontation.

The conventional wisdom initially (at the time of the first Ana Garcia piece) was that KNBC was overcompensating for the fact that “EVERYONE” at KNBC Channel 4 knew Mirthala Salinas (next door at Telemundo) was having an affair with the Los Angeles Mayor. They ignored the story and looked the other way. Now with the scandal breaking they must appear to be an impartial AND ethical news organization – which everyone knows they are NOT.Flap surmised that would be the last peep out of KNBC television and Ana Garcia until last Friday

So, why the continuing FLAP?

It cannot be the Mayor shopping for shoes with Mirthala or the release of his e-mails.

ERSNews says it is because Ana Garcia was SPURNED by the Mayor?

Professionally spurned or does ERSNews know something that they can only report in code?

Ana Garcia is incensed with regards to Mayor Villaraigosa in some way. Could it be the pursuit of the truth? Is she a friend of or supportive of the Mayor’s wife, Corina? Does she just think the Mayor is a liar and a cheating bastard?

Or is there something else?

Update:

In an email from Eric Longabardi of ERSNews.com he says Garcia has her first piece wrong:

1. The photo of Mirthala Salinas’ condominium is incorrect

2. Mayor Villaraigosa left Los Angeles for Detroit and Rosa Park’s funeral after midnight and NOT 11:20 or 11:30 PM, according to FAA records which are different than the Mayor’s schedule.

Now, Flap has to ask: Why aren’t Garcia and KNBC checking their facts? Is this why they want the Mayor’s records and e-mails? Or is it sloppy on purpose?

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa Watch: Lower Public Profile for Mayor?

Is the Mayor attending fewer public events?

And why not? He will be dogged with questions about his affair with Mirthala Salinas until he supplies the records requested by KNBC and comes clean about the long time affair.

Of course, this will affect his divorce case with wife, Corina.

Between a rock and a hard spot, you say?

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa Watch: Has Mirthala Salinas Moved into Getty House?

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Anita Moreno, Antonio Villaraigosa, California, KNBC, LAPD, Los Angeles, Mirthala Salinas, NBC

Getty House is the official residence of the Mayor of Los Angeles

ERS News reports Mirthala and Mayor Villaraigosa are spending alot of time at Getty House, the Mayor’s official residence.

The Mayor’s wife, Corina, and their children reportedly have moved back to the family Mount Washington residence in East Los Angeles.

The Mayor and Ms. Salinas can do what they like but isn’t this a little quick – especially with the Mayor’s divorce pending?

Shoe shopping is one thing but living at the official City Mansion is well – classless.

Update:

Ana Garcia of KNBC Channel 4 Los Angeles has a piece on tonight’s news. She asks the Mayor directly to supply his public records which were requested by Garcia and KNBC News weeks ago and which have been blocked by his attorneys.

The video is here.

Is that Anita Moreno in his security detail attempting to block Ana Garcia from asking the Mayor questions? Or who is it?

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa Watch: NBC Telemundo Expected to Announce Results This Week

Well, Flap was wrong and there were no Saturday announcements from NBC Universal nor have there been ANY leaks about the ethics investigation of Mirthala Salinas.

However, the New York press has picked up on the story.

Anyone have a BEST guess as to when they will announce?

Is the Mayor still out of town visiting with his Princeton-bound son? And where has Mirthala been hiding?

Sightings, anyone? Luke? Mayor Sam?

The LA Times is ready but no NEW material since their piece on Universal’s development plan.
