"Accidental emailer" Alycia Lane lands job at KNBC

A Los Angeles Times story on Alycia Lane, former Philadelphia KYW TV news anchor who has landed a job at KNBC, includes the text:

In May 2007, Lane defended sending e-mails and suggestive photos of herself in a bikini to NFL Network anchor Rich Eisen and, accidentally, his wife.

The Lane story is wrapped up with the Larry Mendte story, which has already been used as a plotline in Law & Order.

"Law & Order" plotline follows Larry Mendte story and Madoff scam

Meanwhile, Mendte garnered three local Emmy nominations, for work done prior to his dismissal from KYW:

Former CBS3 anchor Larry Mendte garnered three nominations - for his role as host/writer/producer of a human interest special, for features-human interest reporting and for writing.

CBS3 fired Mendte in June 2008 after federal charges were filed accusing him of hacking into fellow anchor Alycia Lane's e-mail. He pleaded guilty to those charges, but has since asked that the court alter or vacate his sentence on grounds of "ineffective" counsel.
