KODE weekend anchor Jessica Daley announced that she is leaving the station. She has already anchored her last weekend newscasts and will have her last day as a reporter Wednesday.
Ms. Daley has been hired by a Des Moines, Iowa station.
Her replacement at the weekend anchor post will be recent hire Allison Woods, formerly a reporter at KNWA in Fayetteville.
Ms. Woods' biography on the Four States Home Page website notes her reporting background:
While at KNWA, Allison covered a diverse range of topics. Prior to that, she reported for Fox24 in Fort Smith, AR. It was there that Allison broke a highly controversial, multi-part animal abuse story that involved the local humane society. Her breaking story brought the issue to the community’s attention and, as a result, a new program that closely monitored the safety of the animal was established.
