WHERE IN THE WORLD IS CHANNEL 9'S ORALIA ORTEGA? SHE'S IN OUR STUDIO!!!: After reading about and listening to me talk about my online search for News Channel 9's Oralia Ortega - whom I hadn't seen anchoring the 5, 6 or 10 o'clock news in several weeks, which piqued my curiosity - Tricia took it upon herself to help a brother out and made a few phone calls on my behalf. And just like that, my search for the missing anchor was over!

Oralia recently took some time out of her busy schedule to drop in on the show to explain her absence, and talk about the new half hour program she's hosting.

Part One: Oralia on why she's no longer co-anchoring the news ...

Part Two: Oralia on her new half hour program, "Newschannel 9 Tonight" ...
