January 5-2017 / KOMO has cut several positions in Seattle, including its investigative reporting team, according to several sources who asked not to be identified because of their affiliations with the network. KOMO’s parent company confirmed the cuts, saying that 10 positions were eliminated, including three in the newsroom. The cuts were announced to the newsroom Wednesday morning. The TV station’s Problem Solvers investigative team, which includes well-known reporters Jon Humbert and Tracy Vedder, was dissolved. Humbert, Vedder and producer Kelly Just are being laid off, and Michelle Esteban will become a general assignment reporter, two sources said.
KOMO’s parent company, Sinclair Broadcast Group, confirmed the cuts Thursday, adding that it is cutting 54 positions across the country. READ @ SEATTLE TIMES
