Courtney Perna Joins KLAS ‘Las Vegas Now’
Nexstar’s CBS affiliate KLAS Las Vegas (DMA 40) has hired lifestyle and entertainment reporter and producer Courtney Perna to co-host its Las Vegas Now. Perna joins Kendall Tenney, Mercedes Martinez and Lindsey Simon.
Las Vegas Now features entertainment, pop-culture, fashion, food and fitness as well as local event coverage and special feature segments along with periodic local news and weather updates from the KLAS news team. The hour-long program airs weekdays at 4 p.m. live from KLAS studios immediately before 8 News Now at 5 p.m., which kicks off the station’s evening news block followed by Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune and CBS primetime.
Joining Las Vegas Now is a homecoming for Perna, who lived in Las Vegas for almost a decade after graduating college. She most recently was co-host of the local lifestyle show, The Morning Blend in Cape Coral, Fla., and prior to that, Great Day Houston, in Houston.
