Jumping Ship: Anchors that have changed networks

As with most professions, broadcast journalism can be a competitive and sometimes even cutthroat business.

Some of the news greats like Dan Rather, Charles Gibson and Walter Cronkite stayed with their respective networks for most of their careers.

Other big names, like Diane Sawyer, Barbara Walters and Elizabeth Vargas got their start on one network before switching to a competing network, where they all remain active today. 

Notable journalists like Connie Chung and Katie Couric have put in time at several big name news networks.

Guys like Matt Lauer and Craig Kilborn got their big breaks as sports reporters on ESPN, while former "SportsCenter" anchor Josh Elliot is now the news anchor for ABC's "Good Morning America," another Walt Disney Company product. 

Locally, Marla Weech has been a staple in Central Florida broadcasting for more than 20 years. She has spent time for several Orlando TV stations, and now serves as an anchor for News 13, exclusively on Bright House Networks.
