Pink Slips Fly in Sin City

FTVLive FIRST told you that layoffs were going down at Nexstar owned KLAS in Las Vegas yesterday. 

Word is that somewhere between 16 and 20 people including News Director Ron Comings (pictured) were sent packing. 

We also hear that the Chief Photographer and 3 other shooters got the ax. 

Nexstar purchased the station from family owned Landmark Communications and took over back in February. Insiders say that Nexstar's shareholder driven strategy has been a morale killer almost since day one. 

"It's not about covering news, it's all about the stock price," said one staffer to FTVLive. 

One source tells FTVLive that more cuts are coming to the Sin City station.
