If Joe Schmit, Mark Rosen, and Randy Shaver are the Three Tenors, then Eric Perkins, KARE's lanky Norm Macdonald body double, is Josh Groban. A big goof, yes, but also kind of endearing in his eagerness to please. Perkins's long-running "Perk at Play" segments, in which he performs stunts like trying out for a high school pep squad or driving in a demolition derby, smack of shtick. Then again, they're usually sort of funny, and Perkins always conducts himself with wry self-deprecation. That KARE promoted Perk to weekend sports anchor in the post-Paul Magers shuffle suggests that station management has recognized his offbeat potential as well.
