CBS Cutbacks Affecting CBS3

CBS, which laid off employees at television stations in other markets such as Miami and Chicago, got around to Philadelphia today, as 11 positions in sales, news, and other departments were eliminated.  Some employees are being offered early retirement.

CBS Radio eliminated a dozen jobs at the Philadelphia CBS stations including KYW 1060-AM last month.

There are around 325 full-time employees at CBS3 and CW57.

A CBS3 spokesperson said that the station does not comment on personnel matters.

This comes a day after Fox29 let go of four positions.

Industry sources say that NBC10 offered buyout packages to employees a few months ago.
