Kevin Hale, KTTV’s VP and general manager said in a statement: “After more than five years on KTTV’s Fox 11 10 p.m. news, Carlos Amezcua has decided to step down from the news desk to expand his own media and technology company, ‘Carlos Media Corp.’ here in Los Angeles…. We wish him continued success in building his own media and technology firm.”
