Marla Tellez is KNTV's (NBC Bay Area) morning 11 AM anchor and host of its morning news show, "Today in the Bay." I've been watching Tellez for quite some time and wondered aloud why she hasn't become a star. Not that Tellez needs evening primetime to legitimize her journalistic TV wares but she's sort of under the radar.
When you show a lot of local TV news vigor you tend to catch the eye of the network honchos and word on the street is Tellez certainly more than capable to report on the national scene. Tellez is a two-time Emmy award winner. Her first came in 2006 for "Outstanding Achievement, Education Program" for a 30-minute show she produced on alternative fuels. She earned her second Emmy for "Outstanding Achievement, Arts/Entertainment Program" for "Six Degrees of Love," a true Bay Area love story.
Beyond body of work, Tellez has a personality too. That's good. Often times ego has a way of permeating the entire human TV torso--Tellez is a sure-fire winner for the San Jose NBC O and O. If you haven't seen her, take a look. I promise you quality viewing time, seriously I do.
