Just minutes ago, Telemundo announced cost-cutting measures that will affect the network’s stations in Houston, Las Vegas, Denver, Phoenix and San Jose. All those stations had previously had their newscasts axed, with a hubbed newscast fed from the Telemundo Production Center (TPC) in Dallas.
It looks like Telemundo will also use the TPC model for the marketing and traffic departments, hubbed from Dallas. HR and Finance will also undergo restructuring.
I’m told employees in those departments will be laid off and will have to reapply for jobs that will start opening tomorrow.
Telemundo has also leased its San Antonio and Fresno stations to ZGS.
