St. Louis Anchor Back After 2 Week Absence

By Kevin Eck 

KTVI anchor April Simpson is back on the St. Louis airwaves after a mysterious two week absence.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports “The absence was not a vacation or sick leave, a source said, but station spokeswoman Suzi Mahe declined to comment.”

Simpson also stayed off social media during her absence. She told the Post-Dispatch, “I’m back at work, anchoring the 9 and 11 (a.m.) newscasts and doing stories for the evening casts.”
