WEHT, WTVW To Merge News Operations

Nexstar Broadcasting is planning to move operations of its Evansville, Ind., Fox affil WTVW into the building housing ABC affiliate WEHT, which Nexstar is buying from Gilmore Broadcasting, according to reliable sources close to the situation. It also appears that WEHT’s personnel will have to re-apply for their current positions. Layoffs are said to be likely, although it is unclear at this point how many positions will be consolidated.
