Carla Pesono joined the KSN Local News team in September of 2013 as the Weekend Weather Anchor and Reporter. She is no stranger to intense weather being born and raised in Buffalo, NY where she grew up the youngest of four, playing sports and acting in theater productions.
Carla received a Bachelor's of Arts Degree from Columbia College in Chicago, majoring in Broadcast Journalism for Television.
While attending Columbia College, Carla interned at the Buffalo news in Buffalo, NY, Fox News Chicago and WGN-TV. She also hosted a poker show that aired on Comcast SportsNet in 2012 and freelanced for local production jobs. In 2011, Carla was a reporter for her college's newscast called, Newsbeat, which was nominated for the Chicago/Midwest Chapter National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (HATAS) Student Achievement Award in the category of College Student Production.
Carla is very excited to be in Joplin and getting to be part of the KSN News Team. In her free time, Carla likes to practice yoga, paint and cook! If you would like to email Carla with story ideas or with weather pictures, click here: firstname.lastname@example.org
