This Weekend In TV: Layoffs, Layoffs, Everywhere

NBC5 in Fort Worth, Tex: laid off at least nine people, including reporter Melissa Newton. This move follows a recent content-sharing agreement with two competing stations.

WSEE-TV (CBS) in Erie, Pa.: laid off all nine of its off-camera technical staff in preparation for a merger with WICU-TV, the local NBC affiliate. The nine employees were given two weeks’ notice.

Three stations in Atlanta, GA—Fox O&O WAGA, Gannett NBC outlet WXIA and Meredith CBS affiliate WGCL—will kick off a trial run of a weekday pool today. Each station will contribute one photographer to the pool to share the resulting footage. Will this mean more layoffs if the agreement goes well?
