"There are investments that can provide staggering returns, but the risks are very high," said James Byrne, a law professor at George Mason University.

Larry Carroll and Tracie Savage are familiar faces on the local television news scene. But the two veteran anchor-reporters now prefer to be heard and not seen. Carroll and Savage both say they have been rejuvenated since joining forces as the evening drive-time anchors on KFWB-AM (980). The two have been working the 3 to 8 p.m. shift together since mid-September 2001 and are still amused when they are "found" by listeners who recognize them from their TV days.

When former KCBS anchor Larry Carroll was a 13-year-old growing up in Chicago, he had a dream that he was on television reading the news. Less than a decade later, the dream came true in Los Angeles.

A San Bernardino County judge dismissed fraud charges Tuesday against former KCBS news anchor Larry Carroll at the end of a 10-week trial, declaring that "in the interest of justice" the evidence of the former newsman's innocence far outweighed his guilt. Superior Court Judge J. Michael Welch also declared a mistrial in the case of Carroll's co-defendant, Ronald Long. "I've been anticipating this moment since Feb. 8," said Carroll, referring to the day of his indictment this year.

Veteran television newsman Larry Carroll, one of the few male black anchors in local news, is losing his job. Carroll, who co-anchors the weekend news at KCAL Channel 9, said he was told recently by station management that his contract was not being renewed. He suggested that race and a publicized controversy last year regarding the station's decision to send a white reporter on assignment to Somalia instead of Carroll, who has covered stories in East Africa, may have been factors.
