KLAS Promises More News, More Jobs After Nexstar Investment

By Kevin Eck 

After Nexstar Broadcasting Group put $1.3 million into its Las Vegas, Nevada CBS affiliate KLAS, the station says it will soon add more news and hire more people.

KLAS also says it will add a new kitchen and build “performance set buildouts” for added local shows in early 2017.

“This is a very exciting time for KLAS-TV and our local viewers as these valuable resources, including touch screens, multi-screens, a new weather center and interview set build out, greatly enhance our storytelling approach for a more interactive and engaging viewer experience,” said KLAS vp and GM Lisa Howfield. “In addition, we will further elevate our community service far beyond the April 11 launch of our new enhanced local newscasts, with plans currently underway to expand our news programming and launch a new local lifestyle show over the next twelve months.”
