Steve Edwards, who has served as the anchor of Fox 11’s “Good Day L.A.” for more than two decades and has been a fixture in L.A.-area TV since the ’70s, is out at the morning news show.
A spokesperson said Edwards is “no longer employed by KTTV,” the station that hosts the Los Angeles-based Fox 11, but declined to provide further details. According to a report from FTV Live, Edwards was fired after sexual harassment allegations were made against him. However, Edwards was also a high-priced anchor who was believed to be on his last contract at the station.
Edwards has hosted “Good Day L.A.” since 1995. He was already a presence in local L.A. television, however, and has hosted shows including KCBS-TV’s “Two on the Town,” KABC-TV’s “AM Los Angeles,” and “The Steve Edwards Show.”
Edwards has earned several Los Angeles-area Emmys, got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2004, and accepted the Governor’s Award at the 62nd annual L.A. Emmys in 2010. He first started working at KCBS-TV Los Angeles in 1978. Before moving to Los Angeles, he worked multiple television and radio jobs in Houston and Chicago, originally getting his start at a Houston radio station in the late 1960s.
