mtv.pngBroadcasting & Cable is reporting that MTV Networks laid off a big group of staffers today — with possibly as many as 75 employees getting the axe.

According to B&C, the cuts mostly affected “mid-level executives in the program development department, digital division and scheduling at the company’s music and logo group which houses channels including MTV, VH1 and Logo.”

Representatives for MTV were not available for comment this evening.

The cuts come just over six months after MTV’s owner Viacom cut 850 staffers, with a bulk of that bloodbath coming from MTV.

And last week, MTV dumped Brian Graden, president of entertainment of the Music and Logo group, saying it was part of a “broader reorganization,” the New York Post reported. Looks like the reorganization is very much under way.
