By Kevin Eck 

Carla Pesono, morning weather anchor for KSNF in Joplin, Mo., is leaving the NBC affiliate this week.

“Fans, this is my last week at KSN,” Pesono wrote on facebook. “I’ve accepted a Morning Weather position in Baton Rouge, LA. It has been an incredible 2 years, I’ve grown so much on a personal and profession level.”

Pesono started her local TV news career at KSNF in September 2013.
