Meteorologist Jessica Lebel has left local CBS affiliate KKTV. The Littleton, Colorado native has taken a position in Denver with Fox and CW affiliates KDVR and KWGN.

“I am so excited for my new adventure in Denver but it is tough saying goodbye to a place I love so much,” said Lebel on her Facebook page. “To all of my coworkers and viewers in Southern Colorado, thank you. Thank you for being such a kind and welcoming group of people. You all make saying goodbye so much harder. With that being said, I am going home to Denver (where I'm from) to be a weekend meteorologist at Fox 31 News! I am so thankful for this opportunity and ready to take on this amazing adventure!”

Lebel joined KKTV in December of 2015. Prior to moving to Colorado Springs she worked as a meteorologist and multimedia journalist in Grand Junction at KKCO and KJCT. There has been no word yet on her replacement. 

“We absolutely hate to see Jessica go,” said KKTV general manager Nick Matesi. “She's got an incredible passion for weather which fit in so well with our team. But it's a tremendous opportunity for her to work in her hometown at a good station so while we're sad to see her go, we're always want our folks to follow their dreams and encourage them do so.”
