NBC Universal said Thursday that it will cut 700 jobs and streamline its news operations as part an overhaul aimed at exploiting new forms of electronic distribution.

NBC, a unit of General Electric (GE), says it expects the changes to save $750 million in operating expenses by 2008. The job cuts represent about 5% of its workforce.

NBC Universal will stop scheduling high-priced dramas and comedies during the 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. slot, The Wall Street Journal reported in advance of the announcement Thursday.

From some of the comments that are posted at the link, rooster, Olberman is one of the top viewed on MSNBC. I've not seen any statistics but we'd better let them know that Olberman is one to keep...although I'm sure Olberman would have no trouble getting jobs!

Imus I can do without. I like to catch the CSPAN early morning shows when I can.
