Former WFLD Anchor Byron Harlan Joins KUSI

More than a year after his departure from Fox owned-and-operated WFLD in Chicago, veteran anchor Byron Harlan has signed on to be a weekend anchor and reporter at KUSI, an independent station in San Diego.

Harlan started a career in financial advising when his WFLD contract was not renewed after 13 years with the station. According to TimeOut Chicago‘s Robert Feder, Harlan plans to continue his financial advising and have a “dual career path.”

“I really have been working intensely to develop these two careers, and for it to be happening here is almost unbelievable,” Harlan said. “I’m convinced that your life really will go where your mind takes you.”

Harlan, a San Diego native, was a CBS Newspath anchor before he joined WFLD in 1997.

Conan O’Brien poked fun at content-sharing in local news this week, showing a clip on his show of several anchors repeating the same phrase — “push the envelope” — while reporting on the late night host’s plans to officiate a same-sex wedding on his show.

The original source of the copy was CBS Newspath, according to staffers at two stations featured in the clip. Although “Conan” only showed 18 stations, a search of TVEyes.com reveals that 27 stations reported the story using identical wording (a full list, including markets and affiliations, is after the jump.)

The script was tease copy for Monday’s “Eye on Entertainment” package, filed by CBS Newspath correspondent Sandra Hughes. The full version reads: “Conan O’Brien may be about to push the envelope on late night television. And British songstress Adele seems to have pushed her voice too far. CBS’ Sandra Hughes has those stories and more, in your Monday morning ‘Eye on Entertainment.’”

South Bend’s WSBT, which was featured in the Conan clip, addressed the situation on the 6 a.m. newscast this morning, calling it the “dark secret” of the news business. Read more
