Laura Hutchinson is the anchor of your first news in the morning! She is up bright and early to bring you the day’s top stories from the WTNH Channel 8 Good Morning Connecticut team.
A news presenter – also known as a newsreader, newscaster (short for "news broadcaster"), anchorman or anchorwoman, news anchor or simply an anchor – is a person who presents news during a news program on television, on the radio or on the Internet. They may also be a working journalist, assisting in the collection of news material and may, in addition, provide commentary during the programmer. News presenters most often work from a television studio or radio studio, but may also present the news from remote locations in the field related to a particular major news event.
Laura Hutchinson's experience as a morning news anchor and her local Connecticut roots will bring a dynamic and valuable perspective to WTNH Channel 8 Good Morning Connecticut team.
The role of the news presenter developed over time. Classically, the presenter would read the news from news "copy" which he may or may not have helped write with a producer or news writer. This was often taken almost directly from wire services and then rewritten. Prior to the television era, radio-news broadcasts often mixed news with opinion and each presenter strove for a distinctive style. These presenters were referred to as commentators. The last major figure to present commentary in a news broadcast format in the United States was Paul Harvey.
Laura Hutchinson had anchored the morning news broadcasts and served as a reporter at WWLP. Laura Hutchinson also did moderate the station's public affairs program, 99 News in Focus.
With the development of the 24-hour news cycle and dedicated cable news channels, the role of the anchor evolved. Anchors would still present material prepared for a news program, but they also interviewed experts about various aspects of breaking news stories, and themselves provided improvised commentary, all under the supervision of the producer, who coordinated the broadcast by communicating with the anchor through an earphone. Many anchors also write or edit news for their programs, although modern news formats often distinguish between anchor and commentator in an attempt to establish the "character" of a news anchor. The mix of "straight" news and commentary varies depending on the type of programmer and the skills and knowledge of the particular anchor.
Prior her years at WWLP, Laura Hutchinson worked at WENY-TV in Elmira, N.Y. and at CW Philly Wakeup News in Philadelphia.
Laura Hutchinson, who resides in Connecticut with her husband, holds degrees in broadcast journalism and political science from Jersey University.
