Former WCBS News anchor Rob Morrison is back in legal trouble after being arrested again Monday by Darien Police for violating a protective order, including calling his wife more than 100 times last month.
Father’s Day is an important day for WFSB 3 anchor Kara Sundlun, who grew up not knowing her dad, two-term governor of Rhode Island Bruce Sundlun. At age 17, Kara filed a paternity suit that led Gov. Sundlun to fully accept her as his daughter; her subsequent journey with Sundlun was “messy and difficult, but the happy ending is why [she] wrote a memoir called Finding Dad: From Love Child to Daughter.” The memoir is due out this upcoming fall.
Kara joined Channel 3 in 2000 and in addition to anchoring, co-hosts Better Connecticut with Scot Hanley. Read about her experience connecting with her father here.

The award was presented at the Metropolitan Club in New York at the University’s annual Fred Friendly First Amendment Award Luncheon, named for the former CBS news president and pioneer of television journalism.
