Former KYW-TV (Channel 3) general manager Pasquale "Pat" Polillo, 75, whose feisty editorials made him as recognizable to Philadelphia-area viewers as the on-air anchors, died of a brain tumor Tuesday at his home on Cape Cod. Mr. Polillo joined Channel 3, now known as CBS3, as general manager in 1980. He soon hired popular sports radio personality Howard Eskin and an unknown newscaster, Pat Ciarrocchi, who was working at a television station in Western Maryland. "At the time, he was taking a chance, trying to build a 'hometown team' of reporters and anchors who he believed would really care about this community," Ciarrocchi, who grew up in Kennett Square, said yesterday.
