ST. LOUIS – Mo. (KSDK) — The NewsChannel 5 family has lost one of its own tonight. Long-time anchor and weather person Dianne White Clatto died today.
White Clatto started at KSDK TV in 1962. She was the first African-American female to present the weather — not just on Channel 5 — but at any television station in the country. Her story was so inspiring, the Weather Channel came to St. Louis back in February just to meet her and to create a special biography.
After television she spent years at the St. Louis mayor’s office. She retired a few years ago from Better Family Life.
Dianne White Clatto was 77.
