KSHB Adds Weekday Afternoon Newscast, Hires Meteorologist Kalee Dionne

Kansas City NBC affiliate KSHB will add a weekday 4 p.m. newscast next month, according to Bottom Line Communications.

The newscast, which debuts April 8, will be anchored by Mark Clegg and Christa Dubill, along with chief meteorologist Gary Lezak.

“I am excited to be adding more news at a time when many stations across the country are cutting back. It reinforces our commitment to keep our viewers up to date on what’s happening in their community on the screen of their choice,” KSHB news director Carrie Hofmann said in a statement.

KSHB has also hired meteorologist Kalee Dionne (pictured), who is currently the morning meteorologist at WIAT in Birmingham, Ala. She will start in late April, according to Bottom Line.
