Bianca de la Garza announced Tuesday she is leaving WCVB-TV (Channel 5) to develop an entertainment and lifestyle show that will air on the ABC affiliate.
De la Garza, who has worked at WCVB since 2007, said she is producing the show with her new company Lucky Gal Productions. In a statement, station GM Bill Fine said de la Garza will leave WCVB’s “EyeOpener” newscast at the end of May. Her successor has not been named.
“For over a year now, we have been discussing her future options in television and she is an entrepreneur at heart,” Fine said. “Bianca has numerous other interests and will undoubtedly be successful in pursuing her new career. I’m thrilled her first venture will be on WCVB.”
De la Garza said the new show will focus on entertainment and lifestyle “with an eye on Boston’s local celebrity, fashion and nightlife scene.” Said Fine: “All I can say is the new show will be very Boston and very Bianca.”
