  I don't know about any others that anchored at all of Boston's "big 3", 
but some who have anchored the news on at least 2 Boston stations, not 
necessarily the "big 3". Arch MacDonald was Boston's first TV news anchor, 
he anchored Boston's first ever TV news when WBZ-TV signed on in 1948, 
sitting on a "keg of nails".(News sets have certainly come a long way in 61 
years!!) But back to the topic at hand, Arch MacDonald later went to 
then-WKBG Channel 56 (late 60's/early 70's) when they tried to compete 
against the "big 3". Didn't he later end up at WCVB just after they signed 

  Also, Frank Mallicoat has anchored at WLVI and currently WFXT. Jack Hynes 
anchored on both incarnations of Channel 5 and later on WLVI. IIRC Hynes 
never worked at Channels 4 or 7. Bianca De La Garza has anchored at WFXT & 
currently WCVB, her husband David Wade anchored at WFXT & currently WBZ. Kim 
Carrigan has anchored at WHDH (Channel 7) and currently WFXT.
