Chicago Fox duopoly lays off seven

The rumors of Fox-owned local stations laying off appear to be true: WFLD-TV and WPWR-TV recently eliminated seven positions, including the vice president of programming and promotions position, which was held by longtime Chicago TV veteran Dominic Mancuso. Mancusco departed on January 7, though the announcement of the layoffs came on Wedensday.

Ironically, Mancuso’s last position before working for Fox -a station manager at WGN-TV – was also eliminated.
