Martinez, 34, who was hired in 2010 to sprinkle younger talent into an aging staff, came on the air at 4:30 a.m. — then tweeted at 5:36 a.m. that it would be his last newscast:
Guys, this is my last newscast anchoring the Local10 morning news. Thank you Miami. Thank you WPLG.

Martinez isn’t returning calls, and neither his Twitter nor Facebook accounts give fans a clue on why he quit, and where he’s going.
He came to South Florida’s ABC affiliate from Tinseltown’s KTLA.
And the area’s been good to Martinez.
In addition to a prized job, Martinez got the girl.
He’s hooked up with former Miss Florida Lissette Garcia.
