Join us Thursday, June 27 as Jon Ralston presents a legislative wrap-up from this year’s session.

Jon will discuss the winners and losers, and give a behind-the-scenes look at what took place this session.

Jon Ralston has been covering politics in Nevada for more than a quarter-century, and is recognized as the foremost expert in the state.

He hosts the program, "Ralston Reports," on all three NBC affiliates in Nevada -- broadcast at 7:30 p.m. Monday - Friday on KSNV-Channel 3 Las Vegas. He also puts out an email newsletter called "Flash" that sets the political agenda for the day, breaks news and contains analysis. He appears regularly on national television, including programs on MSNBC, FOX and PBS.

Originally from Buffalo, N.Y., Ralston has a B.A. in English from Cornell University and a M.A. in journalism from University of Michigan. He came to Sin City in 1984 as the night police reporter for the Las Vegas Review-Journal, later covering general assignment and county government before becoming a political reporter in 1986.

He wrote for the Las Vegas Review-Journal for 15 years, the last seven as a freelance columnist. In 1999, the Greenspun Media Group purchased his political newsletter The Ralston Report, and he worked for that company, publishing columns in the Las Vegas Sun, until September 2012.

His awards include: Nevada State Press Association's Outstanding Young Journalist of the Year in 1986, Best Columnist of the Year in 1991 and 1992 and Best Non-Staff Columnist in 2000, 2001, 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2010, and 2011. In 2009, he won the Associated Press News Executive Council award for best local column.
