Michaela Pereira Exits KTTV-TV’s Good Day L.A.
Michaela Pereira attended Peter Skene Ogden Secondary School in 100 Mile House in the Canadian province of British Columbia until 1988. She later studied at Camosun College and the University of Victoria.
Pereira began her broadcasting career in 1993 at CHEK-TV in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, as the host of an afternoon magazine show called CHEK Around. She moved to the United States in 1998 when she joined ZDTV, a cable network based in San Francisco. While there, she co-hosted Internet Tonight, a daily tech and entertainment program. ZDTV changed its name to TechTV a few years later, and Pereira started hosting multiple hours of their tech news.
In 2004, she joined KTLA in Los Angeles. After working there for nine years, Pereira left KTLA to become the host of a new morning show, New Day, at CNN and moved to New York. After a three-year stint in the east, she moved back to Los Angeles, where she had her own daily national two-hour show on CNN’s sister station HLN. The show ended in 2018 because the network opted to cut its live news programming.
