Anchor Donna Cordova Ends Long Run at KTXL

Anchor Donna Cordova has left KTXL after more than a decade with the Sacramento Fox-affiliate. Cordova, who anchored KTXL’s weekday 10 p.m. newscast, did not have her contract renewed.

She posted the following message on her Facebook page, earlier this week:

I’m sorry that so many of you are still just now realizing that I am no longer on the air at FOX40. My contract is not being extended.. simple as that. It comes with the territory. As for the other question.. I will let you know ..as soon as I do.. what path we will be taking next.

Cordova began her TV career as a reporter with KBIM in Roswell, before moving on to anchor jobs at KVII in Amarillo and KTSP (now KSAZ) in Phoenix. While with KTXL, she was named Best Anchor by Sacramento Magazine.

KCBS-KCAL Reporter Greg Mills Offers Advice for Daughter Heather, Now with KOB

In accepting a job with Albuquerque’s KOB, reporter-anchor Heather Mills was essentially following in her father’s footsteps. Mills’s father is veteran KCBS-KCAL reporter Greg Mills and he got his start at Roswell’s KBIM.

Mills comes to KOB from KAUZ in Wichita Falls, TX and her father couldn’t be happier. As she climbs the TV ranks in the southwest, the elder Mills offered her a bit of advice.

“I gave Heather two main pieces of advice,” he told TVSpy sister site FishbowlLA. “Be yourself; keep in mind that they’re hiring you, not someone else. At the same time, watch the other people around you and learn. She’s now with very seasoned anchors at KOB, people that have been doing it 15, 20 years.” Read more at FishbowlLA
