KSNV, the NBC affiliate in Las Vegas, has announced it will no longer produce its nightly political talk show, “Ralston Reports”, which has covered Nevada politics for 14 years. “I don’t think anybody knew outside the station this was happening,” said Jon Ralston, the veteran political commentator who hosts the show:
“Ralston Reports” will air for the final time on Dec. 12,” Ralston said in an email newsletter Monday. “It’s been the best 14 years of my career, folks. Couldn’t have asked for a better partner than (producer) Dana Gentry. One door has closed; another will open soon.”
Ralston, known in Nevada political circles as a deeply sourced commentator, said in an interview that he will keep other parts of his work going after he loses the bully pulpit afforded by KSNV-TV, Channel 3.
“I’m still going to be around,” Ralston said. “I still have a website and an email newsletter I’m doing.”
The decision comes after Sinclair’s purchase of KSNV, which was announced in September.
