The layoff axe may have fallen at Fox19 and their parent, Raycom Media.
Ohio Media Watch reports that WXIX-TV/DT Fox19 parent company Raycom Media is reportedly laying off employees on a company-wide basis. There have been 15 cuts at the Memphis Raycom station, WMC-TV NBC 5. And OMW reports that the Cleveland affiliate, WOIO-TV/DT CBS 19/WUAB-TV/DT MNTV 43, may have suffered double digit layoffs.
Here in the TSMW coverage area, it's not clear that WXIX is affected...but with the cuts being rumored to be company-wide...it's safe to say there's bound to be someone affected at Fox19.
And a Quick Note: This story brings us out of our hiatus (long enough to post this item), as again - we'd planned to bring you major news if there were layoffs. If our thinking is correct, FOX19 will be short a bunch of talented folks...
We will return to this blog more permanently as early as tonight, or as late as Monday...it all depends on a doctor's appointment for Your Tri-State Media Watcher later today...
