St. Louis–Deanne Lane, primary anchor at KSDK is reportedly out according to Deb Peterson at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Mike Shipley, News Director at the Gannett-owned station would not confirm when Lane officially left.
“Deanne is no longer here. We are very appreciative to her of her long years of service and we thank her very much for that.”

Lane, a 25 year veteran at KSDK, contract was up for renewal next month. She became the primary anchor at KSDK when Karen Foss left the station for a public relations job at AmerenUE. Lane lives with her family in Kirkwood.
This is an unfortunate loss for KSDK, who has prided itself on the stability and longevity of its talent. I’m sorry she won’t be at KSDK, but hopefully she will resurface on another station here in St. Louis, or elsewhere.
