It might not come as much of a surprise after KTRV Channel 12 lost its Fox affiliation earlier this year, but news operations at the station are officially over.
According to a release issued by the station, all news programming has been immediately suspended, and the company—Block Communications—will work to place affected employees in jobs in other markets.
“We have some exceptional people here who put forth a terrific and honorable effort every day,” said Rick Joseph, president and general manager of KTRV in a written statement. “But the new business model we find ourselves having to adopt does not include news.”
The station hasn't closed the door on ever offering news programming again, but Boise just won't see it on Channel 12 anytime soon.
Since losing its affiliation, KTRV has operated as an independent station, largely airing nationally syndicated shows and reruns of older series.
