Rick Sanchez Hopes To Be Chosen Person In L.A.

5/4/2011 2:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former CNN anchor Rick Sanchez is moving on from last year's fall from grace -- in fact, TMZ has learned he already has meetings lined up with TWO L.A. stations for a possible new gig.

As you may remember, Sanchez got the chop from CNN last year after scoffing at the notion that Jews are an oppressed minority and suggesting they control the media.

Sanchez eventually apologized for the remarks -- and on Tuesday, he took meetings with execs at KCBS and KCAL in the hopes of filling the anchor spot on either channel.

So far, no word on if he'll land a job ... or be passed over.

I don't think the Jews are ready to forgive him.

He's probably in since both stations have the same anchors. Come on TmZ staff, u live in Los Angeles, don't you see the news in that channel. Kcal is owned by Cbs.

This guy Sanchezgives latinos a bad name.This ignorant prick is one of the worst speakers in tv news history, I mean his absurd statements and total lack of knowledge of most subjects is comical at best and criminal at worst...

He belongs on the air. He was one of the best people on CNN. They were nuts to fire him and hire that idiot Pierce Morgan.

Does Mel Gibson have a station? Would he hire "Sanchez" if he did?

I don't know.On Saturday Seth Myers said something to the effect that Rich Sanchez HAS been forgotten.And he's right.I'd be surprised if he got a job in such a huge market as LA.No one misses him.

I remember when he was on the news here in Miami and he was a big joke. The other news anchors on both his station and the other stations used to goof him all the time when they came into the store I worked at. They could not stand him.
