There was an all hands on deck meeting called for KESQ/KPSP in Palm Springs on Friday.
The staff was told that the company has decided to stop doing news on KPSP and will simulcast the KESQ newscast to KPSP.
Sources tell FTVLive that some people will be laid off, while others are being reassigned.
“I’m still here but not what I was doing or hired to do,” said one staffer to FTVLive.
The station announced the changes on their newscast and tried to spin the news to viewers as it was an expansion. It is not.
People lose their jobs or get reassigned and viewers lose another option for news.
The changes take effect Today.
