Nexstar Buying Sin City Station

You have to feel for the folks working at KLAS in Las Vegas....

The staff has been informed that the station is being purchased by Nexstar. 

Nexstar says they have agreed to buy the CBS affiliate for $145 million bucks. 

“Las Vegas represents a natural complement to our existing operations in the Southwestern region of the United States. KLAS-TV is presently operated by a single station owner, therefore financial results under Nexstar’s ownership will benefit from our scale, expense synergies and proven operating management disciplines," says Nexstar CEO Perry Sook. 

Sook then addded,  “With the post-closing implementation of Nexstar’s strong local news programming, KLAS will be well-positioned to capitalize on political spending in 2016 including the presidential election and the Nevada U.S. Senate race.”

As you can see he makes no mention of the employees and what they will do for the staff. It's all about the money.

It's always about the money with Nexstar.
