Dec 11, 2017  •  Post A Comment

A television personality who has been an institution on the air in Los Angeles was fired Monday.

“Steve Edwards, who has co-hosted ‘Good Day LA’ on Fox affiliate KTTV for more than two decades, abruptly was let go today,” Deadline reports. The report quotes a statement from a spokeswoman for Fox11 saying: “We can confirm that Steve Edwards is no longer employed by KTTV.”

Deadline adds: “Sources say his dismissal stems from sexual harassment allegations, but the station would not confirm that.”

The report also notes: “Edwards has been on the heavily caffeinated morning show since 1995, and his ties to local L.A. TV go back even farther to hosting then-KNXT’s ‘2 on the Town’ opposite pre-‘CBS Evening News’ Connie Chung in the 1980s and doing other morning programs including ‘AM Los Angeles’ on KABC, which featured Regis Philbin.”
