Fernandez back at KTLA as ayem news co-anchor

Tay to return to early morning shift

TV journalist Giselle Fernandez, who early in her career worked as a weekend co-anchor for TV station KTLA Los Angeles, will return to the Tribune Broadcasting station as co-anchor of “KTLA Morning News.”

Move ends a months-long search that began after longtime “Morning News” anchor Barbara Beck abruptly left the station during the first week of the May ratings sweep (Daily Variety, May 3).

Fernandez, who starts Oct. 15, was one of many guest co-anchors who appeared alongside “Morning News” co-anchor Carlos Amezcua in recent months. She will appear from 7-9 a.m. weekdays, joining the 5:30-9 a.m. team of Amezcua, weatherman Mark Kriski and entertainment reporter Sam Rubin.

Sharon Tay, who traditionally co-anchors from 5:30 a.m.-7 a.m., will return to that shift; she had been filling Beck’s 7-9 slot during the search process. Gayle Anderson, who filled in for Tay from 5:30-7 in the interim, will return to her role as a “Morning News” reporter.

Fernandez previously worked in news for CBS and NBC. She had a run as anchor of the weekend edition of NBC’s “Today Show” and also co-hosted NBC’s syndicated entertainment newsmag “Access Hollywood.”

Fernandez currently co-anchors “This Week in History” for the History Channel.
