KSNF Loses 2 Anchors

By Kevin Eck 

Hayden Herrera and Felicia Lawrence announced they were leaving Joplin, Missouri NBC affiliate KSNF at the end of last night’s 10:00 p.m.

Herrera is going to Eugene, Oregon CBS affiliate KVAL to work as a sports anchor. Lawrence is going to work in Charlotte, N.C. as a weekend morning anchor. The two started on the same day in September two years ago.

“I moved to Joplin, MO two years ago to pursue a dream. I didn’t know anyone, I’d never been here before, and I was extremely wet behind the ears as a journalist,” Lawrence wrote on her facebook page. “As I close out this LONG, emotional day, my heart overflows with gratitude. I’ve worked HARD AND I HAVE WON. I did it. I’m unapologetic about it and I will relish in this moment with complete joy and pleasure as I rejoice in my accomplishments. Tonight, I stand fully present in my moment of glory.”


Herrera wrote, “Tonight is the end of my time in the Four States. I’m headed to Eugene, Oregon where I’ll continue to be a weekend sports anchor. Thanks to everyone for watching and coming to up me at games to chat, I enjoyed it all!”
