The anchor says he’s leaving for another job, effective immediately
David Begnaud has left Ora TV’s NewsBreaker, TheWrap has confirmed.
Begnaud, who left KTLA in October 2012 to join the online network best known as Larry King’s current home, has exited for another job. He had been NewsBreaker’s host and executive producer since the show’s launch.
“It is true, I am no longer with NewsBreaker, effective today,” Begnaud told TheWrap.

He declined to give any details about his new offer.
Before KTLA, Begnaud was an anchor for stations in Louisiana and Sacramento before joining KTLA. He told FishBowlLA shortly after he began at Ora TV that he was excited about making the transition to online news:
“For me, the tough part, always, was getting breaking news and then having to wait for the evening newscast. I met Larry King and his executive producer Wendy Walker, and she asked me if I wanted to bring my dream, vision of a breaking news show to Ora.”
Immediately after confirming his departure to TheWrap, Begnaud, in true NewsBreaker style, broke the news himself on Twitter.
Ora TV did not immediately return requests for comment.
