About Mob On the Run
Mob On the Run was reported and written by Ned Day and produced by Bob Stoldal, but a generation of KLAS reporters and photographers contributed as well with material from the mob-related stories they covered on a daily basis. The program was originally intended to be a 30 minute special, was expanded to an hour, then to two hours because of dramatic events which occurred while it was in production. It won numerous awards, some of them posthumously since they were announced after Ned Day's untimely death in 1987.
In 1995, the program was updated by George Knapp in advance of the release of Casino, the movie based on real-life events and people who are chronicled in Mob on the Run. It is still considered to be the best locally-produced program about the mob and is the work for which Ned Day is best remembered.
