Gomer Pyle with the News?


Back in October FTVLive told you that Nexstar owned KLAS (Las Vegas) was boasting about starting up a primetime newscast on their sister MeTV channel.

This was the email sent out by GM Lisa Howfield:

Good Monday Morning everyone….

Another exciting announcement – beginning Wednesday (10/10), 8 News Now will launch another newscast at 9:00 p.m. to air on MeTV! A big thank you going out to our evening news team who will kindly be pitching in to broadcast the only Prime Time newscast in Las Vegas!!!


Las Vegas sources say that KLAS has been inconsistent in their airing of the 9PM newscast.

Sources say that last week, and again last night, the 9 PM newscast did not air. Instead, on both times, KLAS/ME-TV ran “Gomer Pyle USMC and “WKRP in Cincinnati” for that timeslot.

So, the night before one of the biggest midterm elections in our country and KLAS is bumping news for Gomer Pyle?
