Indianapolis sources tell FTVLive that WXIN News Director Lee Rosenthal left work early on Monday and called in "sick" to work on Tuesday.

It was not a good day to call in sick with a major winter storm moved into Central Indiana. Then again, if you're sick, you're sick. 

But word is that Rosenthal was spotted at a Left Coast station interviewing for a  job.

Looks like the "spies" that Spotted Rosenthal on the west coast need to get their eyes checked. Rosenthal sent this email to FTVLive:

"I've been in bed since Monday at 4pm and just had a flu swab at the doctor's office stuck up my nose, confirming I have the dreaded flu.  Type A to be exact.  Proud of my team for their great winter storm coverage with me so sick - I think they all know I was in town the last few days and in bed as we talked and emailed often about our coverage.  Never hesitate to call or contact me about any questions - I always try to answer them as honestly as possible!  Best, Lee"
