Layoffs at NBC’s ‘Rock Center’

As “Rock Center” prepares for its final broadcast next month, NBC News is in the process of laying off some of the show’s production staff, an NBC spokesperson confirms to TVNewser.

The layoffs are expected to affect only “Rock Center” staffers, who were notified of the cuts Thursday. NBC News is attempting to place as many employees as possible elsewhere at the network. 60 percent of “Rock Center” staffers have already been offered other positions within NBC.

The layoffs will go into effect after the show’s final broadcast on June 21.
