D.C. Staff Irked as NBC News Eyes Cuts (NY Post)
NBC News boss Deborah Turness is spending the last few days of the year eyeing cuts — moves that could include axing some senior on-air talent, the Post has learned. Turness, brought on in August to shake up the moribund news division — where Meet The Press and Today had stumbled — is in the midst of a host of end-of-year buyouts and cost reductions, sources said. Mediaite An NBC spokesperson, in a statement on Friday, said, “We offered a handful of voluntary buyouts in the D.C. bureau back in early November. Discussions are ongoing.” The spokesperson declined to elaborate.
