TVSpy is hearing Nexstar Broadcasting has cut 18 people at its newly purchased property KLAS.
Nexstar took the Las Vegas station over from Landmark in February.
>UPDATE: Nexstar evp and COO, Brian Jones told TVSpy, the station group did have a “reduction in force” at KLAS. He added, “It is a restructure based on similar sized operations in our company. The large percentage of the reduction was in Business, Traffic and Digital which we have corporate resources serving those needs.”
FTVLive pointed us to this tweet from social media manager Barrett Tryon:
Today, Nexstar gave me an early summer vacation. Onward & upward.

KLAS referred us to Nexstar for comment. We’ll let you know when we hear back.
