Some Big Suits Were Sacked at Raycom


FTVLive FIRST told you that Raycom was whacking a number of people just before the company is taken over by Gray Television.

Raycom CEO Pat LaPlatney put out a memo late on Friday about the layoffs.

Sources tell FTVLive that some major players at Raycom were part of the layoffs.

We hear that the cuts included:

Susana Schuler (#2 in the company and former news vp)

Steve Ackermann - VP News

Nancy Kent - Richmond-based Regional ND

VP of Marketing got the boot.

VP of Research and VP of Sales.

Raycom took a lot of money off the books. It seems to show that Gray is more interested in saving the bucks, than they are in the news product.

Word is that the number of people bounced at Raycom is in the hundreds.
