KSNV is welcoming Mark Neerman to its Las Vegas newsroom as news director. Neerman is replacing Craig Hume, who joined the station in 2013 from CBS affiliate WHP-WLYH in Harrisburg, Pa. Hume announced his departure from the NBC affiliate a few weeks ago, and explained to his staff that he would be moving back to his home in Los Angeles.

Neerman, who previously worked at Louisville, KY, ABC affiliate WHAS as news director, talked to FTVLive about what he’s been up to since then:

“I left WHAS to launch the start-up indarramedia.com. To the surprise of no one who knows me, I missed news. I couldn’t have been more impressed with Sinclair’s plans for the future.”

KSNV was recently bought by Sinclair for $120 million. This isn’t Neerman’s first time working in Sin City; he was previously news director at FOX affiliate KVVU.

Las Vegas Anchor Releases Book for Voice Actors

Las Vegas news anchor Dave Courvoisier admits he’s living out one of his dreams, on the anchor desk at KLAS. “I just knew I’d eventually be the next Walter Cronkite or Peter Jennings,” he writes on his blog. “Then, I realized I had at least one more good thing left in me–it was voice-acting.”

Courvoisier now has a second job as a voice actor and voice over artist, and today he’s releasing a book on the subject. “More Than Just a Voice” is aimed at voice talent, with advice on how to succeed in a very competitive industry. And no, he’s not expecting a New York Times bestseller:

I will be lucky to break even on the expense of this book. I’ve already spent thousands, and I don’t care. Maybe I could’ve done it for less, but I was a publishing newbie, and once I started, I knew I wasn’t gonna quit until I was published.
