Media Take Out Staff |

According to a new report by the NY Post, longtime Tv news anchor Ken Rosato was fired from his anchor position at WABC for calling his co-anchor, Shirleen Allicot a ‘c***.’

The station has yet to comment publicly on Ken’s dismissal. Media Take Out has reached out to the local news station for comment. 

According to the NY Post’s report, Ken Rosato’s former colleagues were told about his firing on Friday in a series of one-on-one meetings. They were not told what exactly it was – that Rosato allegedly said.

An email was also sent out to staff that said he was ‘no longer with WABC. We thank him for his years of service.’

Rosato started with ABC New York in 2003 as a freelance reporter for the brand’s Eyewitness News show.

In 2007, Rosato was given a shot at the anchor desk and remained there hosting This Morning alongside Shirleen Allicot, Heather O’Rourke and Sam Champion.

Rosato’s presence has been scrubbed from ABC New York’s website and social media, including a profile segment that was done on him in September 2020.
