This week’s Badass Chick is a familiar face: Bianca de la Garza of Bianca Unanchored (and formerly of WCVB!).
You’ll remember that Bianca left her morning anchor position with WCVB in 2014 to pursue her very own late night talk show. A lot of people thought she was crazy to be leaving such a highly-coveted position in a top 10 market, but Bianca knew there were other missions she needed to accomplish. As a single mother, the entrepreneur bravely set out to achieve her goals.
And achieve she did. Bianca started her own production company, Lucky Gal Productions, and within just 5 months of being on the air in Boston hosting Bianca Unanchored, her show is expanding to seven other markets across the country. Oh, and they’re BIG markets: LA, Philly and Dallas, just to name a few. Bianca is showing the country (and the world, really, since her series is also available online) that late night has room for women who are both smart and funny; it doesn’t have to be one or the other.
Bianca encourages her audience to take that jump, push the boundaries and step outside of their comfort zone, because she is living proof that taking those risks is really when opportunities present themselves. Bianca is thriving after taking a very huge leap of faith, and for that she is my Badass Chick of the Week!
Check out Bianca’s show Saturday nights at 11:30 on WCVB.
