Connie Colla back on the air

Connie Colla, who spent a decade here on NBC10 and CN8, relocated with her family to Arizona at the end of May.

She's landed an afternoon show on Phoenix's ABC station. It premiered yesterday.

Smart Family's premise, she says, is "how to live your life short and simple, which we love in Arizona." It's a half-hour, leading in to the 4 p.m. newscast.

She told me that her husband, NBC10 alum David Bentley, who is a Philadelphia native, had a bit of homesickness and only now changed his watch to Phoenix time.
