Dan Ball Speaks Out on KSNV Departure

Former KSNV anchor Dan Ball is speaking out on his dismissal from the station, saying the decision not to renew his contract came as a surprise.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported yesterday that Ball’s time at KSNV was “sometimes turbulent.” In an interview published today, Ball acknowledged “some past indiscretions.”

“Sometimes in a newsroom, when things get heated, not everybody has thicker skin than others,” he said. “I’ll leave it at that. I’m not going to cry over spilled milk. They had told me I was a good anchor and a great reporter.”

Ball said he would like to stay in Las Vegas to remain close to his family, but noted he has a one-year noncompete clause in his contract that may force him out of the market.
