The layoffs include on-air personalities Wendy Suares, Adam Rodriguez and Jonathan Athens, reports Arkansas Business, as well as KLRT news director Ed Trauschke.
Earlier this month, Chuck Spohn, general manager at KLRT-KASN, was dismissed.
Mission, which has an operating relationship with Nexstar, acquired KLRT-KASN from Newport TV in July.
Michael Vaughn, Nexstar's Little Rock vice president and general manager, called it a "one-wave" reduction, as opposed to the first in a series.
All remaining employees will be consolidated into KARK headquarters, reports the publication.
