Exclusive: Marla Tellez Leaving NBC Bay Area; Popular KNTV Anchor Going to Fox KTTV LA Station

People Moves:




My KNTV insider has told me that Marla Tellez is headed to LA's KTTV, the Fox station in LA.

VP/GM Kevin Hale told his staff that Tellez will join "Good Day--LA" on January 6 and a source close to both stations confirmed it to me.

Tellez has been on the radar for several weeks by LA station big suits. She's a Bay Area native and the move to the Southland will no doubt elevate her morning primetime status.

  3. Maria Sansone - the current GDLA host with Steve Edwards - will be leaving in maternity very soon. If Marla is her new fill-in, it's a great choice as both are very likable (and easy on the eyes). Her star has always been on the rise.

  4. Good for her, but sorry to see her go. Very nice personality and something to look forward to as I started my day. Perhaps time to find another morning news station.

  5. I have watched her since the show with Liam Mayclem and have always liked her personality. I always thought she would rise up to be a star as you indicated a couple of weeks ago.
    I will miss her beauty and brains in the Bay Area market! I saw Jon Kelly say his good byes too, today. Hope we don't lose Christina Loren!

  6. I have been mentioning Marla on my blog for a few weeks now. And then good luck came to her.
    How do I do it?

  7. OH NO. How could they let Marla go to LA of all places. All the guys who work out at Club One Santana Row at 5:00am are going to be CRUSHED. She was #1 in our book. Marla has the whole package. Beauty, brains and personality.

  8. Thanks Rich for such a lovely work. Just saw your blog on Marla, glad I checked my bookmark of your blog. I am extremely happy for Marla and her progressive path. I don't say simply just because she is my all time favorite, but because she is sharp, smart, hardworking, talented, beautiful and more importantly, she has likable/approachable PERSONALITY ... that makes her unique; and thus SHE DESERVES the best possible scenario. Still .... I will say #watchout, don't be surprise if you see this ageless beauty at National level. So sad to see not having her on our local TV, but more trilled and extremely happy to see her well being in all respect. Good Luck to Marla!

  9. OH NO! I also have to wonder why KNTV could let her go to LA of all places. I agree with the previous person that she was sharp, smart, hard working, talented, beautiful, and has likable/approachable personality. I too am so sad to see her go. Good luck to Marla!

    P.S. I guess I will be watching Good Day L.A. live stream again. Had not done since one of the previous anchors left a couple of years ago.

    I watched Marla in Abq. One of the best, I was very surprised to see her on GDLA , so I guess this means we scored. She's the best choice for US here in LA, I hope you will be here for a long time (WELCOME) to our homes.and bless you
