Kelly Sutton, co-host of Channel 4 midday show Today in Nashville, is out at WSMV, two sources confirmed to the Tennessean.

Sutton was among several people laid off at the station as part of parent company Meredith Corporation's nationwide "cost-control" measures.

Longtime weekend anchor Alan Frio also was laid off as part of Meredith's cost-cutting moves last week.

The layoffs, spokeswoman Kara Kelly said in an email to The Tennessean, "are always difficult to make, and we will miss our colleagues."

"We are appreciative of their contributions to WSMV News 4 and our Nashville viewers," Kelly wrote, "and we wish them well in the future."

Today in Nashville, which airs at 11 a.m., will go from one hour to 30 minutes, with current co-host Carole Sullivan now working alone. And 30 minutes will be added to News4's midday news, anchored by Holly Thompson, a corporate spokeswoman said.
