Carlos Amezcua, co-anchor of KTTV Fox 11's 10 p.m. news, has left the newscast and plans to focus on his own production company, station executives said Monday.

Amezcua's last broadcast was Friday.

"After more than five years on KTTV's Fox 11 10 p.m. news, Carlos Amezcua has decided to step down from the news desk to expand his own media and technology company, 'Carlos Media Corp.' here in Los Angeles," Kevin Hale, vice president and general manager of KTTV, said in a statement.

"Having won over 10 Emmys throughout his career, Amezcua has made many contributions to this community, as well as our newsroom," the statement continued. "We wish him continued success in building his own media and technology firm."

Amezcu joined the station in September 2007 as a co-anchor on the 10 p.m. news.  Previously he served as an anchor on the KTLA Morning News for 16 years.
