Even a casual viewer of KTLA's "Morning News" knows this much about co-anchor Giselle Fernandez: she's informed, attractive and very proud of her Latina and Jewish culture. Since she joined the breezy, ratings-leading Channel 5 newscast in October to replace founding co-anchor Barbara Beck, Fernandez -- who helms the 7 and 8 a.m. editions with Carlos Amezcua -- has felt at home on the multiethnic program. She has found a place on television where her ethnic beauty and her dual heritage are actually an asset.
