I'm gonna miss that Marla Tellez. She's a cutie.
Can't blame her, though. More career opportunities in San Francisco.

I hope they can bring Monica Arementa back or hire Augusta Myers. It would be a way for the morning show to be top of the line again. Every since Monica left the morning show has gone down the tubes. Marla leaving is probably the best thing that can happen to the Morning show. I could tell that Marla was not really dedicated to reporting news from New Mexico. I think Marla’s intention is to work in National news. Monica or Augusta are more dedicated to report New Mexico news.

I for one didn't find her all that interesting. I prefer the KOAT morning group....easy on the early morning eyes.
All the best in SF.

I think Marla brought a fresh face to channel 4 news. It is nice to see a sincere smiling face in the eraly morning hours.

Monica Armenta is a bit out there. Steve Stucker gave some high wind warnings in his forecast and warned the high profile vehicles to be cautious out there. Monica asked what a high profile vehicle was. Duh

Nothing left for her in NM. Her boy Carlos went to jail for the Santa Fe DWI hit-and-run.

Doubtful Monica can do a better job at KOB than what she is currently doing at APS. I don't think Monica is willing to get up that early. Will KOB pay Monica 110K+?

I liked her with the early news and think she did a great job. Now that she's pimped herself to such a dysfunctional org as APS, she's just another freeloader getting a fat paycheck at taxpayer expense for doing less than minimal work.

Well, that's a bummer but I bet she had this move in mind as a career builder. She was in SF originally, took the anchor job here and is likely moving back to SF as an anchor, with a much larger salary, more opportunities, etc. It's not at all uncommon for people to build resume' in a secondary market, then jump back to a larger market when they get the opportunity.

Good luck, Marla! Hope things work out well for you.

Not to worry. Fat Bill will pardon Carlito before 12/31/2010!

Not Monica Arementa !! she is horrible. I would rather they just have Steve Stucker and his dogs do the whole broadcast.

I'm surprised she didn't migrate to the Dallas market. Several of Abq's former news people have done so. Among them Cynthia Izaguirre, and last night I saw reporter Matt Grubbs.

Obviously the Dallas market is a whole lot smarter than APS.

Between Tucson and now Dallas, I've noted several old Abq newscasters in both during my numerous visits.

We love Marla, she is sweet and has a sincere smiling face. You and Steve are a good pair.
Wish her all the best. A shame to see you leave.

Marla, I and many others appreciate what you did for KOB, ABQ, and New Mexico during your time here. You're a sincere person, and it shows through in your on-screen presence. That's one of your best qualifications and qualities. I know you'll do great things back in California, whatever your future endeavors may be.
Best wishes.

Marla Tellez is a horrible speaker and can't get through more than two sentences without butchering the sentence content and the English language in general. If anyone thinks she's headed for national news they don't understand what it takes. I wish her well, but I'm glad she's gone.

OMG!!! I am so bummed! I loved to wake up to Steve and Marla. No offence but Antoinette Antonio just doesnt do it for me. There is no connection between Steve and Antoinette like there was with Marla. I loved the jokes and hard times they gave each other. She will be missed greatly!!!!!
