A spokesman for San Francisco’s KQED-TV/FM confirmed the gist of a Jan. 10 blog report about imminent lay-offs at the station but denied that they would be the largest in station history, as reported by BNET media analyst and former KQED exec David Weir. KQED is “seeing declines and looking to the future of how do we preserve what we have with integrity and all of that, but no decisions have been made,” said Scott Walton, communications director. Layoffs are “not necessarily coming from radio or tv production,” but will probably “a few here and around the building,” he said.
