Zak Dahlheimer Last Weekend Newscast Anchoring for KESQ

Today is my last day with KESQ News Channel 3 and CBS Local 2. I'll be taking on a new adventure as a reporter at WNCN CBS 17 in Raleigh, North Carolina. Tonight, I'll be filling in on the anchor desk for Brooke Beare and Kris Long for CBS Local 2 News at 5:30 p.m., 6:30 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. In case you missed it, here's my sign-off from the last weekend newscast I anchored this past Sunday for News Channel 3. I've really enjoyed living and reporting in the Coachella Valley these past two years. Thank you to the viewers and my colleagues for making it feel like home. I'll always cherish the fond memories and friendships made. Let the adventure continue!
