A source that has proven reliable in the past tells us that KMTV reporter Mary Nelson has resigned from Channel 3, effective March 3rd. According to this tip, Nelson has accepted a position with the Nebraska Attorney General's office. No word on whether her departure is related in any way to her handling of the bogus lottery winner story she filed on Monday night's 5 p.m. newscast.
UPDATE: We were assured late Tuesday night by a source at the station that Nelson's resignation is NOT related to her Monday Powerball story. She apparently turned in her resignation last Friday.
