When John Carlin (@John_Carlin) last sat behind an anchor desk, he read the news from a paper script. When he returns to television today, the script will be on an iPad.
That’s one of the changes Carlin will deal with when he comes back to WSLS-TV (Channel 10) after a five-year absence. Carlin left Channel 10 in 2008 after 21 years as an anchorman in order to work in public relations and other businesses.
Carlin will co-anchor the newscasts at 5 p.m., 5:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. He will do the 11 p.m. news during ratings “sweeps period” when viewership is measured by the Nielsen Company. The summer ratings period began last week, so Carlin will be on at 11 p.m. through most of July.
