By Merrill Knox Comment

Anchor Dan Ball has been cut loose at KSNV, the NBC-affiliate in Las Vegas, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Ball’s last day was Monday, general manager Lisa Howfield said. Ball anchored the 4 p.m. newscast with Marie Mortera and the 11 p.m. newscast with Jessica Moore.

“All things must come to an end, so after nearly 4 years with KSNV News, the time has come to move on … I have enjoyed working at Channel 3!” Ball wrote on Twitter.

The Review-Journal describes Ball’s time at KSNV as “sometimes turbulent,” reporting that the anchor was “regularly at odds with management and fellow staffers.”

>Update: Howfield confirms to TVSpy that Ball is no longer with the station, but says it is KSNV policy not to comment on personnel matters.
