NBC10’s “10! Show” comes to an end Friday after 10 years.
Starting Monday, the 11 a.m. news will run until noon, wiping out the 11:30 to noon show, station GM Eric Lerner told staff on Wednesday. Lerner cited the station's commitment to strengthening its newscasts for the switch.
No on-air talent will be let go, but four dedicated "10!" show staffers could lose their jobs, though they are being encouraged to apply for other open positions at the station, says an NBC10 spokeswoman.
