Marla Tellez began at FOX 11 in January 2014. She anchors FOX 11 News at Noon, provides reports for the 5 p.m. newscast, and has become known for her weekly tour of one of Southern California’s many mega-mansions.
She comes to us from the NBC affiliate in the San Francisco Bay Area where she anchored the midday newscast and reported for the morning news program, "Today in the Bay.”
Marla’s broadcast career began behind-the-scenes first, as a news writer and then, a news producer in the Bay Area, where she was raised. Her on-air career launched when she landed a reporting gig for the CBS affiliate in Salinas. From there, she transferred to the CBS station in San Francisco as a correspondent and producer for the nightly show, Evening Magazine. Simultaneously, she was also a general assignment news reporter.
In 2008, Marla left California for an anchor opportunity in Albuquerque, New Mexico. That's where she got the chance to appear in the hit AMC show, "Breaking Bad." You can see her in the Season 3 premiere titled "No Mas."
Over the years, Marla has interviewed numerous high-ranking politicians, celebrities and covered the highly publicized Scott Peterson Trial. She’s also picked up two Emmy Awards along the way.
Marla has a political science degree from Sonoma State University, where she graduated magna cum laude.
She and her husband love to run, golf when they want to get frustrated, and every once in a while, they’ll find some time to relax.
