Out the Door in Albuquerque


KOAT Morning Anchor Marisa Maez! is signing off from Hearst station this week to….say it with me….spend more time with her family.

She joined the station in 1999 as an AP and has been anchoring the morning news for the past 16 years.

“I am so grateful to all of the loyal viewers who have faithfully watched me go through so many changes professionally and personally,” Maez said in a prepared statement. “How lucky I am to have had such a wonderful career, it makes saying goodbye so difficult.”

“We are very sorry to see Marisa leave KOAT. She is an excellent anchor and journalist and a valuable member of our morning team,” said KOAT General Manager Lori Waldon. “But we understand her desire to spend more time with her family. We will miss her.”

She signs off tomorrow.

This was the social media post from her co-anchor Todd Kurtz:
