Larry Mendte and Alycia Lane co-anchored the evening news for four years on KYW-TV, a CBS affiliate in my former hometown of Philadelphia. The station was gaining on the dominant ABC affiliate when the wheels flew off. Lane was arrested for an alleged scuffle with New York police. Now her co-anchor has admitted to invading Lane's privacy by hacking into her e-mail system. It is alleged Mendte provided details about Lane's criminal case and other information to the Philadelphia Daily News. Both anchors were fired and have had to deal with criminal charges. The story is here.
