When Sinclair bought KSNV in Las Vegas, they kicked popular GM Lisa Howfield to the curb.
Now Howfield is back across the street and competing against her old station.
Howfield has been hired by KLAS and she replaces Emily Neilson who retired. The move gives KLAS good inside information about their competitor and they have a GM that more than likely wants to bury the competition.
"Nexstar’s long-term success reflects its core commitment to the viewers and advertisers across each of the individual markets it serves. In this new role, I will utilize the management experience and deep community relationships built over my career to further strengthen our Las Vegas television and digital operations as leading providers of the most compelling local news content and entertainment programming in the market. I look forward to taking on this new opportunity and working with the exceptional team of broadcasters at KLAS-TV and LasVegasNow.com as we continue build upon the foundation of our client service excellence across our multi-distribution marketing solutions platform,” Howfield said.
