Connie Colla packing her bags

CN8/NBC10 alumna Connie Colla and her family are relocating to Arizona, as she told friends in an e-mail.

She and husband David Bentley, a former photog for NBC10, sold their Penn Valley home and plan to do real estate deals and TV/production work.

The Montana native landed in Philly at WCAU in 1995. She was caught in the 2008 shutdown of CN8.

Besides the new setting, Colla says, "most of all we look forward to introducing our children to golf and tennis, hiking, and our first backyard pool. My motto this year is 'Follow your heart, and success will come along for the ride.' "
