Any time a station is bought by one of the two mega-groups (Sinclair or Nexstar), people start losing their jobs. Now that Sinclair has bought KSNV-TV in Las Vegas, the 'cutting back' has begun.
Jon Ralston, who hosts "Ralston Reports", has been told he's done. His show airs at 6:3pm in Reno and Vegas. GM Lisa Howfield says the time slot will be filled with "expanded local news". That's code for, "more news with no additional expense".
Ralston has done the show for 14 years. Merry Christmas.
