KSAX-TV Alexandria drops local news programming

Email

ALEXANDRIA, Minn. — Alexandria television station KSAX has eliminated its local newscast in a cost-cutting move, laying off 17 employees.

The station said Tuesday it will substantially reduce its operations in central Minnesota effective immediately. Viewers will continue to receive ABC network and local programming from KSAX's sister station, Twin Cities-based KSTP-TV.

But KSAX will discontinue its regularly scheduled local news cut-ins. The last newscast was Monday night.
