After a DUI Arrest, KSPR Anchor Frances Watson Returns to TV

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

KSPR anchor Frances Watson has returned to the air four months after being arrested for DUI in Springfield, Mo.

“As many of you know, it’s been four months since I have been on the air. I made a bad decision resulting in my arrest for drinking and driving. I was suspended and nearly lost everything I’ve worked hard for,” she said in a lengthy Facebook post.

“It hasn’t been easy. It’s embarrassing and sad really. However, I’ve made the choice to own my mistake and not hide from it,” she continued.


The station never ran a story on her arrest back in December.

She joined the team in 2015 as a reporter and weekend anchor.
