Carlos Amezcua slams Channel 5

Ciudad coverNow in the anchor chair at Fox 11, Carlos Amezcua blasts his former station in the May issue of Tu Ciudad. "When Hal Fishman died, so did the KTLA News," Amezcua says. "He was the last bastion that demanded news be done a certain way. Management wasn't very supportive of the news department toward the was time for me to move on." Also in the issue, Marcos M. Villatoro writes why he was angry at the superficial way the Rivera family — like him, Salvadoran — were portrayed in the media after 20-year-old Edwin Rivera killed his father, two brothers and SWAT officer Randal Simmons in the Valley in February. Also: East L.A.'s Latino punk scene, the reopening of La Fonda, and Pepe Aguilar returns to L.A.
