Daniella Guzman IS NBC5 WMAQ bound from KPRC 2



Earlier today I blogged how longtime Chicago media reporter Robert Feder was taking time out to report that KPRC 2 weekend anchor Daniella Guzman was getting hired in the Windy City.

Feder reported Guzman would jump to weekday mornings at NBC owned and operated NBC 5 WMAQ:

After more than five years at KPRC-TV in her native Houston, Guzman is the odds-on favorite to succeed Zoraida Sambolin as anchor of NBC 5 News Today. Sambolin signed off last November to join CNN as co-anchor of Early Start with Ashleigh Banfield.

Well Guzman told me earlier this evening the deal is actually done and she is leaving her birth city for the bigger TV market.

"I'll be heading to NBC 5 in March," Guzman told mikemcguff.com. "Opportunity knocked and I opened the door. I will miss Houston very much!"

  1. I am going to miss her so much too. I think she is the hottest news woman in Houston and now she is leaving?! So sad....this is worse than when Lucy Noland left.

  2. I remember staying up late on Sunday nights when I was in high school to see her anchor, mainly because I loved looking at her face, and she is hot. She will be missed.

  5. The sooner she's off the air the better. Her sense of fashion reminded me of the horrid outfits that 80's hair bands would weat -- audacious and gawdy.

    I KNEW once KPRC brought Irika Sargent to do the weekends, Daniella was on her way out, which in other words: she saw the handwritting on the wall and pulled a Kevin Sumlin.

    Mike McGuff: which other Houston news personality is the next to leave ?

  7. Daniella needs to give every male viewer a kiss before she leaves.

  8. Between her and Reyna, KPRC has/had two of the most overhyped, under talented, microphone nags in the local market.
