As Predicted, George Lilly’s SJL Hatchet Comes Down On Flint, Toledo ABC TV Stations!

From the Toledo Blade:

Only a week after SJL Broadcasting purchased WTVG-TV, Channel 13, and station officials announced there would be no job losses among the station’s 100 or so employees, approximately two dozen positions have been eliminated.

The job cuts were to Channel 13’s production, support, Web, and sales staff — none involved on-air talent — and included several buyouts, sources at WTVG said.

SJL Broadcasting has also cut approximately the same number of positions at WJRT, including two of the station’s longtime anchors, Bill Harris and Joel Feick.

SJL is partially owned by George Lilly, the long-time broadcaster who has bought and flipped many TV stations in the last 25 years. I previously blogged about the potential fate to workers at the two TV stations formerly owned by Disney/ABC. Read Here!

Unfortunately, some things are always certain.   Death, taxes…and layoffs!
