Charles Perez Fired by Local 10

Steve Rothaus is reporting WPLG has fired Charles Perez. 

Earlier this year, the former weeknight anchor was demoted to the weekends, and in the past few weeks, he's pretty much disappeared from Local 10 completely. 

Perez filed a complaint with Miami-Dade's Equality Opportunity Board claiming his demotion was spurred by his sexuality and a nasty legal case with an ex-boyfriend that involves accusations that Perez had gender-identity issues.

Perez promises to amend the discrimination complaint to include the termination.
