Director's Alert: Husband of former WKYC Anchor under FBI Investigation
The story broke on Saturday when FBI agents raided Mendte's home and seized a personal computer.
According to an article posted on the Inquirer's website: "CBS3 anchor Larry Mendte opened former colleague Alycia Lane's private e-mail account hundreds of times over many months, sources told The Inquirer yesterday, and the FBI is investigating whether he passed on gossip about Lane to the media.
In part, federal officials are trying to determine whether Mendte intercepted communication between Lane and her lawyers about her lawsuit against CBS3, which fired her in January."
Mendte remains employed at KYW, but has been taken off the air pending the investigation.
Larry's wife, Dawn, is currently an evening anchor at crosstown station, Fox 29.
