Sinclair is swinging the axe.
So far KATU in Portland and KOMO in Seattle have had almost 30 jobs eliminated.
Sources say nine employees were sacked at KATU and another 18 at KOMO.
Editors, Producers, Live Truck Operators and Web Staff are some of the positions that got whacked.
Management at either station is staying mum as staffers lose their jobs.
Sinclair has spent the past year on a buying spree snatching up TV stations across the country.
If you're station is one of those being bought up by Sinclair, this is what you have to look forward to.
