    Wednesday, August 10, 2022 1:00 AM

    KLAS 8 News Now in Las Vegas and UNLV announced Monday they would jointly host debates for Nevada’s hotly-contested governor and U.S. Senate races — though it was not immediately clear if any of the four major campaigns have committed to attending those debates.

Both are set to take place at UNLV’s Judy Bayley Theater and will be aired statewide by KLAS and Univision. 
  • In shifting Nevada economy, manufacturing taking more prominent role
    Tuesday, August 9, 2022 1:00 AM
    The manufacturing worker base grew to an all-time high of 5 percent of Nevada’s employment landscape, an increase that signals a shift in the local economy as the state has now exceeded the number of jobs it had pre-pandemic but also as the hospitality industry remains 33,000 jobs short of pre-COVID levels.
    Economists said it’s unclear whether hospitality-related employers are cutting costs and not hiring people back, or if workers left the industry voluntarily for other opportunities.
