News Anchor Fired from ABC for What He Was Allegedly Caught on Hot Mic Saying

A month ago, an anchor for the New York City ABC affiliate was dismissed after a hot mic purportedly captured him using a four-letter word when referring to a female colleague.

The word was not broadcast, but it reportedly led to the termination of the anchor.

The outlet reported that the longstanding anchor of “Eyewitness News This Morning” was terminated “immediately” after he “called her a c**t” on a hot mic.

Insiders at the network informed Page Six that Rosato was “immediately let go” after using the four-letter epithet.

WABC-TV has not confirmed the termination of Rosato.

In addition, the presenter has not publicly commented on the matter and has declined comment requests.
