After nearly two decades, anchor Blanca Garza has left KSTS Telemundo 48.
Garza married earlier this year and tells Media Moves she decided not to renew her contract at the Bay Area station to spend quality time with her musician husband. She says they also wanted to have the freedom to move, in case they want to return to Los Angeles.
“Los Angeles is where a big part of the music industry is. It’s also where my family lives,” she states. “I’m going to take a 3 to 4 month break to travel with him, accompanying him on his tours. Then I would like to get back to work, but I really don’t know where I would do that yet.”
Garza joined Telemundo 48 in January 2001.
“I will always be grateful to Telemundo 48 for giving me the opportunity to serve the Hispanic community of the Bay Area for almost two decades and for giving me a platform where I built a very special connection with our audience. That will be hard to forget.”
Before her move to the Bay Area, Garza was an entertainment reporter at KMEX Univision 34 in Los Angeles and a freelance correspondent for Televisa.
