One group of people that should be nervous at WKBW in Buffalo are the Master Control Operators.
Word out of Tampa is that Scripps owned WFTS is bouncing the station's Master Control staff and moving the operations to a hub in Minnesota. It is expected that around 10 people will be pink slipped with the move.
6 days ago, FTVLive FIRST told you that Nexstar owned WJET in Erie, PA. is laying off their entire staff of Master Control Operators in August.
It is expected that more Scripps and Nexstar stations will undergo cuts as the stations either hub or automate their Master Control operations.
