95 KTTV-KCOP Staffers Get Downsizing Notices
Fox's Los Angeles duop planning heavy cuts

A spokesperson for the Fox stations says the downsizing is a result of "the current economic climate." It's not guaranteed that all 95 will be let go. Some may move into open positions, or a brighter economic picture could spare some jobs. But it appears likely the Fox-MyNetworkTV duopoly will be around 95 positions lighter by fall.
Around 20 positions were eliminated at Fox's WNYW-WWOR New York operation a week and a half ago.
A person familiar with Fox's L.A. downsizing said the 60-day notices have not been issued in Fox markets other than Los Angeles.
Hopefully it is the people that decided to go with DTV High VHF instead of UHF or the people that decided they can run at low power High VHF and still produce a good signal. Pre DTV change over...perfect reception on UHF 65/66. Post DTV change over (low signal even with a new High VHF only antenna!)
