Layoffs at Scripps’ Kansas City Station. Chief Meteorologist Mike Nicco Out

By Kevin Eck 

Scripps Kansas City NBC affiliate KSHB has laid off several staffers.

A company spokesperson confirmed with TVSpy that there were some “position eliminations” announced at the station but gave no further details.

Scripps also confirmed that chief meteorologist Mike Nicco is no longer with the station. We asked for clarification on whether Nicco was included in the layoffs or left for another reason, but we haven’t heard back.


Last year Scripps laid off 300 as part of a restructuring it said was to “create a more nimble company to further leverage its strong position in the U.S. television ecosystem and propel its growth across new distribution platforms and emerging media marketplaces.”

Nicco joined the station in 2022 after working at KGO in San Francisco for 15 years.
