Antonio Villaraigosa Watch: Mirthala Salinas Resigns from Telemundo

Telemundo Channel 52 Poitical Reporter Mirthala Salinas announces “on air” her boyfriend, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s separation from his wife.

Salinas Will Not Return To Telemundo-KVEA 52

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?

Antonio Villaraigosa Watch: Mirthala Salinas Transferred to Riverside

City Councilman Antonio Villaraigosa is interviewed by reporter Mirthala Salinas of Telemundo at Factor’s Famous Deli on May 19, 2005 in Los Angeles

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s girlfriend, suspended Telemundo Channel 52 reporter and news anchor will PERHAPS be returning to work next week but NOT in Los Angeles.

Mayor’s girlfriend being transferred to Riverside

Newscaster Mirthala Salinas, who was suspended without pay for two months in August after her affair with Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa became public, is scheduled to return to work next Monday. But she won’t be taking up her old job as a fill-in anchor on the 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts for Telemundo KVEA Channel 52, according to sources familiar with the situation.

Instead, Salinas will be sent to the station’s Inland Empire bureau in Riverside as a reporter, sources said, a notable fall for a one-time rising star who has become one of the most recognizable faces in local Spanish-language news.

Which is what a reputable and ethical news organization would have done many months ago – transfer her to a venue where there would be NO conflict of interest.

Mirthala’s contract expires with NBC Telemundo in December and there have been rumors that she may resign and not report to the Inland Empire assignment.

There have also been rumors that her contract will not be renewed in any case.

Anybody out there stalking Getty House? Is she living with the Mayor? Or is the Mayor living with her in the Valley at her Los Angeles lobbyist sponsored condo?

It is reasonable to believe that Mirthala will stay home and play first lady of Los Angeles – after the Mayor’s nasty divorce is over in a few months.

Stay tuned……….

Villaraigosa and Salinas wait out a pause in filming on the north steps of the state Capitol. Salinas is now a news anchor on Telemundo 52, June 19, 2006 (now on leave).

Update:
ERSNews had this story an hour before the Los Angeles Times – as usual.

Alicia Unger, a reporter for the Spanish-language network Azteca America, has filed a claim against the City of Los Angeles for her rough treatment by the Los Angeles Port Police on August 3rd.

As the reader recalls she was running to obtain comment from Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa regarding his affair with Telemundo political reporter Mirthala Salinas.

She seeks damages and the City has 45 days to either accept or reject the claim.

Any bets on a settlement in this one?

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?
