FTVLive FIRST told you about layoffs going down at Scripps stations and while the company has admitted to "some layoffs" they have tried to downplay it.
FTVLive told you that the ax had swung at KNXV in Phoenix and KMGH in Denver. Yesterday, staff was kicked to the curb at KGTV in San Diego, WEWS in Cleveland and WFTS in Tampa.
At WEWS, the Creative Services Director, several PA’s and the GM’s assistant are reportedly among those laid off yesterday.
At WFTS, the station’s Chief Engineer, a manager and several producers were pink slipped.
FTVLive also reported FIRST and EXCLUSIVELY that Scripps will be hiring "Digital Content" people to run at least some of their TV newsrooms. It is more than likely going to first start at KNXV and move on from there.
