KUSA-TV staff gets buyout offer; layoffs threatened

The Denver NBC affiliate is offering a voluntary severance program to some employees age 55 and up with at least 10 years’ service, General Manager Mark Cornetta said in a memo. As is often the case, the deal comes with a warning: “If the voluntary offer does not result in a sufficient number of volunteers, or if business conditions worsen, it may be necessary to consider other expense reductions, including layoffs.”
