L.A. Mayor's Mistress Has New Job in Spanish-Language Radio
Los Angeles Times's L.A. Now blog today picked up on reporter/former L.A. mayoral mistress Mirthala Salinas:
Her rise through the ranks at Telemundo was swift. Her fall following the disclosure of an affair with Antonio Villaraigosa, mayor of our fair city, was a spectacle. And now she's back - on the radio this time. Hoyinternet.com is the first with the news:
Cuatro meses después de renunciar a su trabajo como reportera de Telemundo-Canal 52 debido a su amorío con el alcalde Antonio Villaraigosa, Mirthala Salinas ha regresado al campo periodístico de Los Ángeles como co-presentadora de un programa radial.
The gist is, four months after getting dumped by Telemundo, Salinas has been hired as co-host of the morning talk show, "Hoy por Hoy", which airs Monday through Friday on W Radio, XETRA 690 AM.
As you can see, Villaraigosa's Democratic Party affiliation was left unmentioned.
