(KSL News) Local television station KJZZ TV has canceled several shows and laid off nearly two dozen full-time employees because of the bad economy.

On Friday the station canceled "KJZZ Cafe" and "Home Team," two shows that aired in the morning on Channel 14. It also laid off at least 22 full-time employees and several part-time employees as a result of the cancellations.

KJZZ blamed the economy, low viewership and lack of revenue for the cutbacks.
