Layoffs Possible After Sale Of KMTR

With Fisher Communications taking over at KMTR in Eugene, Ore., “operational and staff” changes are on the way, the Register-Guard reports.

KMTR, previously owned by Newport Television, was purchased by Roberts Media, LLC and will be operated by Fisher Communications under a shared services agreement. Content sharing between KMTR and KVAL, Fisher’s CBS affiliate in Eugene, will begin next month.

KVAL-KMTR general manager Greg Raschio told the Register-Guard that management has held individual meetings with “virtually every employee.”

“Any operational and organizational changes that are made will be to gain efficiencies and eliminate (duplication),” Raschio said. “Out of respect for the individuals I’m not going to give you any numbers or names.”

Fisher Communications is in the process of being acquired by Sinclair Broadcast Group, which Raschio said may bring more changes to the station later this year.
