Bianca de la Garza was a news anchor at WCVB-TV and WFXT-TV before striking out on her own with “Bianca.”

Word is “Bianca,” the late-night show hosted by former WCVB-TV Channel 5 anchor Bianca de la Garza, is going off the air, at least temporarily. We’re told the show has not been canceled, but producers are taking a hiatus. De la Garza did not respond to an e-mail Monday. The show debuted on WCVB-TV last January and was subsequently picked up by CBS-owned stations in several major markets, including Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Dallas, and Baltimore. Locally, “Bianca” airs Saturdays at 11:35 p.m. and focuses on topics ranging from fashion and dating to pop culture and sports. De la Garza’s Lucky Gal Productions produced “Bianca” with Embassy Row, whose credits include “Watch What Happens Live.”
