Mirthala Salinas no longer works for Telemundo. She had been suspended two months from her reporter job at Telemundo 52 for not disclosing she was having an affair with L.A.’s mayor, while assigned to the political beat.
The scandal prompted an internal investigation, reprimands, suspensions and created great hostility within the newsroom at how the situation was handled. As a result, Telemundo had reassigned her to a bureau in Riverside, which did not previously exist. But… Mirthala failed to show up to her first day back on the job on Monday.
Hours later, Telemundo officials announced in a written statement she wouldn’t be returning to her job and had “mutually agreed to end” their employment relationship.”
