Romero tapped KTLA anchor desk

Reporter's attitude, experience to contribute to program's success, Wald sez

KTLA-TV Los Angeles has named general assignment reporter Lynette Romero co-anchor of the weekday editions of “News at 10,” with Hal Fishman.

Romero, 33, replaces Terry Anzur, whose contract was not renewed (Daily Variety, Aug. 17). Romero starts Monday.

In addition to her anchoring duties, Romero will continue reporting for the station.

“A lot of people who want to be anchors say they’d want to still report, but I would go crazy if I didn’t (do both),” Romero said Thursday while en route to covering the Democratic National Convention.

Job is Romero’s first as a full-time weekday anchor. She has done anchor fill-in work, however, while at KTLA.

She joined the L.A. station on a per diem basis in December 1998, then moved into the job full-time with a contract in January 1999 as a general assignment reporter.

She got her start in the news business in her hometown of Denver, at NBC affil KUSA. From 1991-92, she was a reporter at KVUE Austin, Texas. She then returned to KUSA.

“In the short time Lynette has been at KTLA, her contributions have been remarkable,” KTLA news director Jeff Wald said. “Her winning attitude and extensive news experience will contribute greatly to the ongoing success of ‘News at Ten.’ “
