BREAKING: Cuts at Fox19??

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'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 all depends on a doctor's appointment for Your Tri-State Media Watcher later today...
