Layoffs at Some Gannett Stations, Including KHOU and WFAA

gannettlogoSome Gannett stations have been hit with layoffs this week, TVSpy has confirmed. The layoffs affect “a small number of positions at some stations,” we hear.

“We’re continually taking advantage of new technology to reallocate resources to our journalism and put more feet on the street,” a Gannett spokesperson tells TVSpy. “Occasionally, these efforts result in staffing adjustments.”

The layoffs were reported yesterday by FTVLive and by Houston media blogger Mike McGuff.

McGuff reports KHOU in Houston and WFAA in Dallas were two of the stations where layoffs occurred. McGuff says “editors, master control operators, truck engineers, Great Day Houston staffers and the art department have all been affected.”
