"Joplin will always have a place in my heart," she said, as she made the announcement on the morning show.
Pesono left the following message on her Facebook page:
Fans, this is my last week at KSN. 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. Sad to have to say bye to you all. Thanks for starting your day with me, letting me tell your stories, give your weather forecasts and highlight your local restaurants. Joplin will always have a special place in my heart. I'm gonna miss this award winning morning team. Thank you to former Chief Meteorologist Gary Bandy and our News director Leisha Beard for letting me join the team.
KSN was Pesono's first professional job.
