“As a sports fan, it is personally gratifying to partner with Yahoo! Sports Radio, especially since the Yahoo! Sports app has been my 'go-to' source of sports news for years," said John Caparella, president and COO of The Venetian Las Vegas, The Palazzo and Sands Expo. "Ken Thomson could not be a better fit for The Palazzo and Lagasse Stadium, as he is the definitive expert in meshing sports news with the world of Las Vegas sports betting."
“Our commitment to Las Vegas has never been greater,” said David Gow, CEO of Yahoo!
