NBC Sports Cuts Staff at Notre Dame Halftime Show

nbcsports11.26.08.jpgWe hearing that NBC Sports cut a number of staffers who worked on the Notre Dame halftime show at 30 Rock after the broadcast this past Saturday, the last of the year. NBC Sports televises at least six Notre Dame home games per year. We haven’t been able to confirm the number of staffers let go, but it’s likely not more than a handful.

The cuts come at a time when NBC Universal is trying to reduce its budget by $500 million next year.

In June, NBC and ND reached an agreement to extend the broadcasts through the 2015 season.

We contacted NBC Sports PR for confirmation but have yet to hear anything back. We’ll update when we do. If you have any additional information, email us.
