Mark Neerman Named News Director at KSNV

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.

WHAS News Director Mark Neerman Resigns

WHAS news director Mark Neerman has resigned from the Louisville ABC affiliate, effective immediately, TVSpy has learned.

WHAS general manager Linda Danna announced the news to staffers in an email this afternoon. The email included a statement from Neerman, who said he is “ready for the next challenge.”

“I’ve been very lucky to work with the first-rate team at WHAS 11 and I know they will continue to lead the way in a very competitive market,” Neerman said. “I’m considering a number of options and I look forward to what lies ahead.”

Neerman joined WHAS in 2009 from KNTV in San Francisco, where he was the assistant news director. He previously worked as ND for KVVU in Las Vegas and WTVR in Richmond, Va.

Assistant news director Jim Hice and executive newsroom producer Lena Moore will remain in their current roles, reporting to Danna, until a new news director is named.

Danna did not respond to a request for comment from TVSpy.

Louisville’s WHAS and WAVE Start Chopper Partnership

In an arrangement that is becoming more prevalent across the country, Louisville’s WHAS and WAVE are set to begin sharing a news helicopter this week.

Starting Friday, WHAS, a Belo-owned ABC-affiliate and WAVE, a Raycom Media-owned NBC-affiliate, will begin sharing a news helicopter from Helicopters Inc., based in St. Louis.

According to LouisvilleKY.com, the two stations will share air time and video feeds, especially in the event of breaking news, while also partitioning time for individual use of the chopper.

Earlier this month in Miami, NBC O&O WTVJ joined with WFOR and WPLG in sharing a helicopter.

“It’s becoming really common all across the country,” WHAS news director Mark Neerman said.
