Little Rock Weatherman Heading East

KLRT meteorologist Matt Peterson is leaving the Little Rock station at the end of the month and heading to his hometown. 

KLRT News Director, Austin Kellerman, said in a statement Peterson had accepted a job at Philadelphia CBS affiliate, KYW. H

Peterson joined Fox 16 as a weekend meteorologist in April 2015 after working for three years in the morning shift at Sioux City, Iowa, ABC affiliate KCAU.

Now in his 3rd job in TV news, he's headed to the 4th market (boy has times changed). 

Peterson is Philadelphia native who graduated from The Pennsylvania State University.

Kellerman noted that the station wished Peterson well and that a search had begun for a replacement to fill the vacant spot at KLRT. "[Peterson has] put in the work serving viewers here in central Arkansas and deserves the opportunity to return home to Philadelphia," the News Director said.
