A spokesperson for Parker confirmed the split with the Los Angeles Times on Monday.
Parker, who has been with KTLA since 2005, began dating Villaraigosa in 2009, two years after the mayor was involved in an extramarital affair with a reporter for KVEA, the Los Angeles Telemundo station (he since divorced his wife).
A former Miss USA, Parker was working as an anchor and general assignment reporter for KTLA, often covering local politics, when she began dating Villaraigosa.
