It is not uncommon for anchors to hopscotch between nearby stations, hoping, along with their new employer, that viewers will flock to a familiar face.
But the prospect of four anchors -- whose identities had been woven by years of service into the fabric of Channel 3 -- suddenly appearing on a pesky competitor is hard not to notice. The switches have indirectly highlighted the competition between Channel 30, the aggressive upstart, and Channel 3, the longtime market leader. WVIT, once a ratings backwater, now has the highest-rated 11 p. It has never been with the goal of hurting the competition.
Others see crosstown competitive fires, which seem to burn more intensely at WVIT, playing a role in the hiring moves. Oh yes, this is part of that," said Roger Desmond, a University of Hartford communication professor. To which Schwaid responded: "If they think I'm obsessed with them, then the people at Channel 3 are paranoid.
Schwaid also pointed out that his hires, with the exception of Brooks, are people who already were off the air at Channel 3, which no longer wanted their services. Brooks was the No. In contrast to Brooks' immediate switchover, Lark had been off the local airwaves for more than a year when WVIT signed him in January. WFSB removed him from the air in late after he unsuccessfully sued the station to prevent it from trying to replace him with Terzi on the main newscasts.
Peckinpaugh had been off the air since September, when WFSB dropped her a few months after her long-term contract expired. However, he said he and Schwaid initially hesitated about adding Smith, because they did not want to create the impression that they would try to hire everyone who had worked at WFSB. The new personnel clearly have brought attention to WVIT and added years of local experience to its on-air news teams. As far as ratings, WVIT's early-morning and weekend newscasts, co-anchored by Peckinpaugh and Lark, respectively, have shown some improvement.
But it's hard to tell if that's directly related to the new anchors. In recent months, Channel 30 also has expanded the morning newscast, increased its overall news ratings, and enjoyed the success of its parent network, NBC. He said there may be "a curiosity factor" for some viewers, but that is usually a short-term phenomenon. Certainly, WVIT seems to be taking advantage of the anchors' familiarity.
The station already has featured both Peckinpaugh and Lark as the subjects of special series on being a single parent and fighting heart disease, respectively. Familiarity with viewers "doesn't hurt. If people are dialing around and see you doing a newsbreak, they may stay and watch," Lark said. With a brand-new anchor, "It can take 18 months to three years before they have any kind of impact in the market," said Don Fitzpatrick, whose San Francisco-based company specializes in scouting and tracking on-air TV talent.
Nobody is complaining, however. Although the former WFSB anchors probably would love to headline a 6 p.

Jay Gruden mentioned one option might be to give the ball to Robert Kelley, who hasn't had a carry yet this season.
