KFMB. Possible job cuts?

Heard KFMB in San Diego is dramatically reducing it's operating staff, including directors. Does anyone have updated information as to whether or not that's true?

I blame Comcast.
And even if I don't, someone else will.

Is this basically a switch to an Ignite-type system or is it something more?
Is the station in trouble - or are they just getting rid of technical people, not unlike many other stations out there?

Not sure if it's that system
But from what little I've heard automation is involved. Again, I don't know if it's really happening.

KFMB has four openings listed at the Lost Remote jobs page.
(And since MediaBistro is acquiring Lost Remote, I think it's OK for me to mention that here.)

The postings could be because the techs have to re-apply for their jobs.
But yes, they have cut op positions. I am friends with one of the ones that lost their job.

heard it happened
Word is that 5 people were let go this past Friday. A new automation system is suppose to go on line sometime soon.
