Mark Mester is a general assignment reporter for KTLA 5 News. He joined the team in May 2014.
If you ever want to have a long conversation with Mark, just ask him where he’s from.
He was born in Budapest, Hungary, and immigrated to America in 1986. He’s called Pennsylvania, New York City, Connecticut, Florida and beautiful California home.
He loves hearing and reporting great stories, and let’s just say he likes talking, too.
Mark has held jobs both behind and in front of the camera but credits his growth in this business to the time he spent in Santa Barbara, California, working with the talented veterans at KEYT-TV.
When Mark isn’t reporting, you’ll find him in the water surfing, on the tennis court or devouring a delicious bowl of gelato.
