This morning's TV broadcast was to be the last for co-anchor Sharon Tay on "KTLA Morning News: First/Early Edition." Tay is leaving the Los Angeles morning news program to join MSNBC, where she will be the host of two new weekend entertainment shows.
"Sharon has contributed to the success of both 'Morning News' and 'News @ Ten' and we will miss her," said KTLA/WB news director Jeff L. Wald in a prepared statement.
Tay joined KTLA in 1992 as a reporter and added "News @ Ten: Weekend" co-anchor duties in 1993. She had been co-anchor of the morning news program since 1998.
Tay stirred up a minor controversy over the blurring of the line between news and entertainment last year by posing in various stages of undress in an issue of Razor, a men's magazine, published in March.
Her website features Tay's "beauty secrets" and a Tay photo gallery.
