Holiday Layoffs At NBC?

By Alissa Krinsky 

Jossip reports that a “former NBC News network insider who maintains close ties with Mama Peacock’s news division” has told the site that “there are going to be firings (at NBC News) very soon — everybody is terrified.” The source gives a two-week time frame for the layoffs.

An NBC News spokesperson had no comment for TVNewser.

ICN, though, has lots to say about the possibility of firings, specifically with regard to how that might affect MSNBC.

>More from a TVNewser tipster: “A cost-cutting memo was sent to managers on Monday requesting 10% cuts in crew usage in order to meet year-end financial goals.”
