St. Louis Anchor Done and Headed to New Zealand

KSDK Weekend Weather Anchor Chester Lampkin is leaving for a new job in a far-a-way market.

He's headed to New Zealand.

In June, Lampkin will start as a meteorologist for MetService of New Zealand, which he described as being akin to the National Weather Service for that nation.

"I'll be one of their broadcast meteorologists, and I start sometime in June," Lampkin said. "Sad to leave STL. It's my hometown.

Lampkin said he may make a few more appearances on KSDK, "but I am basically done."
