Former KGO Reporter Dies

By Kevin Eck 

Laura Marquez, who was a reporter at San Francisco ABC-owned station KGO, has died.

Marquez worked at KGO from 1989 until she left to work at ABC as a correspondent in 2003. She left ABC in 2011.

“Laura had battled breast cancer for the past 16 years,” wrote a friend in a note obtained by TVSpy. “Her attitude and spirit impressed her doctors and her zest for life kept her living beyond expectations.”

Marquez is survived by her mother, her father, her husband and five-year-old daughter.
