Local TV presenter Lynette Romero returned to the Angelenos TV screens on Monday, making her debut on NBC’s morning news show “Today in LA.”

The Emmy Award-winning journalist greeted NBC audiences for the first time at 4 a.m. Monday morning, telling viewers she’s “been waiting for [Oct. 10] like you can’t believe it.”

“I’m so happy to be here,” continued a beaming Romero. “I keep saying this, but my heart is so full. You know how you feel like your heart will burst when you’re so excited? That’s how I feel.”

Romero, 55, will host “Today in LA” weekdays from 4am to 7am alongside Adrian Arambulo, meteorologist Belen De Leon and traffic presenter Robin Winston – all of whom she thanked on Monday for hugging her and making her feel gave to be welcome .

Scattered throughout the Monday show were “Getting to Know” segments that gradually introduced Romero to the “Today in LA” audience. The first fun fact Romero offered viewers about herself was that she likes to “eat french fries and nachos together.”

“It’s exciting. It’s fresh. It’s a little scary because there’s a lot of eyeballs out there,” Romero admitted on their first date. “I think they’re kind of rubbing their eyes because they’re like, ‘Ooh, It’s 4 am, Romero. That’s awfully early.” So they’re in their pajamas. They’re watching and I’m so glad they’re there because I can feel you.”

“Lynette, we knew right away whenever you joined us that you felt like family,” De Leon added, “so we know how everyone out there is feeling and we’re so lucky to have you as part of our team.” are you.”

She takes over the position vacated last year by Daniella Guzman, who relocated to an NBC affiliate in her hometown of Houston

The former KTLA weekend morning news anchor abruptly left the independent broadcaster where she worked for nearly 24 years last month to join crosstown rivals KNBC-TV Channel 4. Her departure was announced in a 37-second farewell during KTLA’s morning news show, which deeply angered fans and prompted her former co-host Mark Mester to unexpectedly criticize the network’s on-air management. Allegedly, the situation was mishandled because Romero didn’t personally say goodbye to viewers. (Mester was suspended and fired shortly thereafter.)

Romero reportedly wanted to stop working at KTLA on the weekends and had asked management there to allow her to work an anchor shift on weekdays so she could spend more time with her family, but was told there was none there were vacancies.

Last Thursday, Romero wrote on Instagram that she was “greeted with a huge warm hug” at KNBC and shared the first of several promos made for her debut.

“I’m definitely in good hands. ready for more! I wasn’t kidding when I said our #nbcla team is awesome. #4lynette #todayinla,” she added.

“It’s funny how you can connect instantly,” Romero told KNBC Thursday after a rehearsal with the new crew. “I’m happy, I’m ready.”

On Friday, she hosted a Facebook Live session to show viewers KNBC’s Los Angeles newsroom and connect to the station’s mobile app.
