Colleen McCarty, investigative reporter for Las Vegas CBS affiliate KLAS, is leaving broadcasting to focus on a law career.
“I love KLAS-TV and am very proud of the work I have produced with my I-team colleagues,” said McCarty, who told TVSpy she is leaving the station in September to begin a new job at the Las Vegas law firm of Gordon & Silver. “The transition is very bittersweet.”
McCarty said going to law school had been a life-long dream. “I hope to combine my two skill sets to work to protect the rights of journalists and to preserve the First Amendment. I love journalism too much to leave it entirely.”
