‘It’s Been the Best 14 Years of My Career’: KSNV Cuts Nightly Politics Show

john-ralstonKSNV, 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.

Jon Ralston, Dana Gentry Join KSNV in Las Vegas

Jon Ralston and Dana Gentry have formally joined KSNV, the NBC affiliate in Las Vegas.

The pair currently work on “Face to Face,” a weekly political affairs show in Nevada. Ralston is the program’s host and Gentry is the program’s executive producer. “Face to Face” airs on KSNV, as well as two other Nevada stations owned by Intermountain West Communications Company, KRNV in Reno and KENV in Elko.

“I am thrilled to have the ‘Face to Face’ team at KSNV,” Robert Stoldal, Intermountain West’s executive vice president of news, said in a statement. “The program has established a reputation as a place where news is broken, politicians are called to account and issues are thoroughly vetted. There is no other venue like it.”
