Last we heard from Don Lark, a major presence on the WFSB anchor desk in the 80s and 90s, he was doing some communications work for Linda McMahon’s U.S. Senate race; his tenure in Syracuse (his market after Hartford/New Haven) had ended. Tonight comes this word from the WTNH newsroom where the following memo was issued:
Folks: A familiar face is returning to the Connecticut airwaves and to News 8 this weekend. Please welcome Don Lark, former main anchor at WFSB and most recently Syracuse , NY . Don was the 5p/6p/11p anchor at Channel 3 for more than 15 years before leaving for WSTM in Syracuse . Don knows and loves Connecticut , has family in the area and will be joining Sara Welch on the anchor desk at 6pm/10pm and 11pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Don will be here this Friday to meet everyone.
That pushes Ted Koppy out of the weekend co-anchor spot (or perhaps that had happened already). Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown at WTNH these days.
