KARK Anchor Moving on...Movin' Up
KARK/Channel 4/Little Rock anchor Jessica Dean is leaving. Dean is leaving Little Rock for Philadelphia's CBS 3 where she will be co-anchoring the evening newscasts with Arkansas native Chris May. Her final newscast on KARK will be Sunday, September 8. Philadelphia is the 4th largest news market in the U.S.
In the news release Dean had this to say: “It has been a joy to tell the stories of my home state,” said Dean. “During my time here, I've seen how many big-hearted, kind people make up Arkansas. Together we've seen the best and the worst of life. It's been my honor to share these experiences with our viewers.”
Dean joined KARK as evening news anchor in 2011. Before that she worked for KATV/Channel 7/Little Rock.
