A follow-up to my April posting on the idea of eliminating TV news anchors. Apparently it’s an idea that’s catching on. Cory Bergman’s lostremote blog suggests j-schools downplay anchor careers.

Granted, not all anchors are overpaid TelePrompter readers (just those in the major markets), and — as a few readers noted — many in smaller markets do more than just sit in the studio. But it does seem that the path TV news will follow will include the elimination of anchors for electronic packaging of local and network news reports in some sort of package.
