Lisa Carberg Off Anchor desk at WVIT

carberg croppedLisa Carberg, longtime evening anchor for NBC owned Hartford station WVIT, has been moved to enterprise reporting for the station which includes health and consumer reporting.

“I love NBC Connecticut, it’s where I’ve proudly spent 15 years of my career,” Carberg told the Hartford Courant. “I work with a great team and I look forward to continuing to put out a good product for our viewers every day.”

Carberg started working at WVIT in 1995. She left in 1999 to work at FOX News, but returned in 2002. She started her career at WJKA (now WSFX)  in Wilmington, NC, as a reporter and photographer.

WVIT news director Matt Piacente told TVSpy he was going to try 11:00 a.m. anchor Kerri-Lee Mayland in Carberg’s spot at 5:00 p.m. and move Shirley Chan to weekday mornings. But Piacente added, nothing was “permanent right now.”

Kerri-Lee Mayland Tapped as WVIT Morning Anchor

Kerri-Lee Mayland has been promoted to weekday morning co-anchor at WVIT, the NBC O&O in Hartford.

Mayland is currently the station’s weekend morning anchor. She replaces Yvonne Nava, who is moving to Texas to be closer to her family, on the weekday newscast.

“We are pleased to have Kerri-Lee join the NBC Connecticut weekday morning team,” WVIT president-GM David Doebler said in a statement. “Viewers will enjoy getting to know Kerri-Lee.  Her sharp journalism skills and warm demeanor will fit nicely with our already strong morning team.”

Mayland, who has been at WVIT since 2010, will anchor alongside Brad Drazen, meteorologist Bob Maxon and traffic reporter Kayla James starting next month.

Hartford’s WVIT Expanding Weekend Newscasts

WVIT, the NBC O&O in Hartford, is adding 90 minutes to weekend newscasts.

Beginning this weekend, both the Saturday and Sunday morning newscasts will begin at 5:30 a.m. Previously, the Saturday newscast began at 6 a.m. and the Sunday newscast began at 6:30 a.m. In a statement, the station called the early hour “a key time period for New England early risers.”

“The expanded coverage allows us to serve Connecticut viewers that have not had any options for local news before 6 AM on weekend mornings,” said David Doebler, WVIT president and general manager.

The newscasts are anchored by Shirley Chan and Kerri-Lee Mayland, along with meteorologist Darren Sweeney.
