Weekend Anchor Chris Saldana Leaving KLAS

Chris Saldana, the weekend anchor at KLAS, has announced his exit from the Las Vegas CBS affiliate.

Saldana, who joined KLAS in 2004, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that his decision to leave was because the station denied him vacation time to be with his ailing father over the holidays. Saldana was also passed over for a promotion when weekday anchor Gary Waddell retired earlier this year, he said.

“It was my decision,” Saldana said.  “I love what I do but was no longer happy where I was doing it at.”

KLAS news director Ron Comings told the Review-Journal that he is “sorry to see him leave and wish him great success in whatever he chooses to do.”
