Yesterday, FTVLive FIRST reported that Scripps owned KMGH in Denver was gutting their Promotion Department.
We wrote, "There has been no formal announcement, but sources are telling FTVLive that Scripps owned KMGH that a large number of staffers in the department are being kicked to the curb."
After the FTVLive story, Scripps corporate sent along this statement, "KMGH is reorganizing its Creative Services department to build a promotions strategy with greater digital and social marketing focus. The Denver broadcasting landscape is evolving and KMGH is leading the way. The station is not changing the size of the department in this reorganization."
So, were people laid off or not?
Our sources say yes, Scripps just sent us spin.
God I love the communications business.
