News director Larry Perret and assistant news director Leesa Dillon have been let go at KTVX-KUCW, Nexstar’s duopoly in Salt Lake City, TVSpy has learned.

“I wish them both the very best in their future endeavors,” KTVX-KUCW general manager Richard Doutre’Jones told TVSpy in an email.

The stations were purchased in July by Nexstar Broadcasting. In December, about 15 employees, including station manager Matt Jaquint, were laid off. Doutre’Jones took over as general manager last month.

Dillion and Perret had both worked at the station since May 2011.
