NBC is planning to get rid of an entire level of MSNBC’s management team, as well as making major cuts at NBC News, according to The New York Post. Two senior MSNBC staffers — head of primetime programming Bill Wolf, and editorial director Davidson Goldin — are set to see their jobs eliminated. But the cable network’s top shows — those hosted by Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann, and Dan Abrams — are said to be sacrosanct, and will escape the cuts unscathed.
As for CNBC, it too will be unaffected, says The Post, because NBC chief Jeff Zucker wants it at full strength to compete with Fox Business.
