After the August job cuts, NBC Universal will soon have another round of layoffs as part of ongoing restructuring in the lifestyle group.
NBC Universal is a subsidiary of Comcast. The new wave of layoffs follows in the aftermath of the company’s integration work in the lifestyle networks after the exit of E! president Adam Stotsky in early September.
Stotsky’s portfolios are now being shared and redistributed among other executives in the company.
As a result, marketing, communications, development, and programming operations of E! will be aligned with other brands in the entertainment and lifestyle departments.
According to insiders, the new layoffs will hit less than 5 percent of current staff strength across the group. The layoffs will affect Bravo, E!, Oxygen and others.
