FTVLive FIRST told you about layoffs going down at Scripps stations and while the company has tried to downplay it, the cuts have been significant.
Sources now tell FTVLive that the axe has swung at WXYZ in Motown.
Word is that at least three EPs and Senior Producer all caught the falling blade.
A number of staffers that have been cut are longtime employees, i.e. higher salaried.
FTVLive also FIRST told you Scripps is looking to put digital content people in the ND chairs. As we FIRST reported, it has already happened at KNXV in Phoenix. FTVLive now hears that Denver and Tulsa are expected to be the next two stations on the list.
