Viewers of “The Morning Blend” on KGUN Channel 9 Wednesday saw a familiar face serving as Amanda Guralski’s co-host.

Sally Shamrell made her first local television appearance on the lifestyle program since leaving KVOA in 2003 to pursue an acting career in Los Angeles.

During her time away, Shamrell received national acting gigs, married and spent a few years in Australia.

She said she is only filling in for now on “The Morning Blend.” You can catch her on the show today and next week. It airs at 11 a.m. on KGUN and 2 p.m. on the CW58.
