Veteran reporter Mike Owens is leaving KSDK (Channel 5) to pursue a career in the law, joining criminal defense attorney Chet Pleban and partner Lynette Petruska at Pleban & Petruska Law after Labor Day.

His last day at KSDK, where he has worked for 27 years, will be Sept. 3.


“I’ve been a reporter for 35 years,” Owens said Friday night between newscasts. “It’s been great fun. But after 35 years, maybe it’s time to do something else.”
