Layoffs Hit Little Rock’s KLRT and KARK

Nearly 30 employees have been laid off from both Nexstar managed Little Rock stations, KLRT and KARK, as part of a move to consolidate the two stations, according to Arkansas Business.

The layoffs come less than a month after Mission Broadcasting completed the purchase of FOX affiliate KLRT from Newport Television. Soon after the deal went through, Nexstar, who signed an outside services agreement with Mission, removed the station’s GM and promised more changes to come.

Arkansas Business quotes a KLRT insider who said at least 20 of the layoffs came from KLRT, including news director Ed Trauschke and sports anchor David Raath.  Another source said KARK, the Little Rock NBC affiliate, saw eight employees let go including on-air talent Wendy Suares, Adam Rodriguez and Jonathan Athens.

A Nexstar spokesperson told TVSpy the company does not comment on personnel matters.
