Los Angeles TV News

KTLA's longtime news anchor, Hal Fishman, has been hospitalized with a serious infection.

Viewers can send good wishes at the KTLA website.

Telemundo anchor Mirthala Salinas has been suspended without pay for two months, following an investgation into a conflict of interest. Salinas covered news regarding Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa for at least 18 months without disclosing she was having an affair with the mayor; most infamously, she reported on the air about Villaraigosa's divorce without disclosing the ongoing affair.

Some Telemundo executives were also suspended or reassigned.

Update: This afternoon the L.A. Times reports that Hal has colon cancer, which has spread to his liver.

Hal Fishman has been with KTLA most of my life. He is in my prayers.
