Longtime Fox Host Steve Edwards Fired By Fox News Over Sexual Harassment Allegations

News coming from Fox reportedly claim that local TV host Steve Edwards has been fired from his job with KTTV, which is an affiliate of the bigger network based in Los Angeles.

Edwards was the host of the “Good Day L.A.” show, and has worked as a host for over two decades, or ever since 1995 to be exact. Prior to this, he worked for some time at both KABC and KCBS.

Edwards was actually let go due to sexual harassment charges which broke not too long ago, causing his director, Kris Knutsen, to cut the cord on their decade-long collaboration.

“We can confirm that Steve Edwards is no longer employed by KTTV,” a network representative stated.

On Tuesday, KTTV anchor Steve Tony McEwing opened up on the subject during his “Good Day L.A.” segment.

Edwards got McEwing’s appreciation and gratitude, saying he was “a mentor and a friend and my staunchest supporter.”

“This is without question one of the most difficult things I’ve ever had to read,” he said of his on-air announcement.

KTTV reporter and temporary anchor Mario Ramirez commented in a similar fashion.

“Steve has been a mentor to me, shocked to see him go so suddenly,” Ramirez tweeted.

Despite the ongoing drama, Julie Edwards, the former host’s daughter, wrote about her father on Twitter, clearly defending him.

Former “Good Day L.A.” executive producer, Steve Holzer, said the occurrence “just sucks all around.”

Given the fact that he had collaborated with Edwards recently more than before, he said the final decision hit him “like a ton of bricks.”
