CORUS ENTERTAINMENT's WINNIPEG cluster has laid off five staffers, according to reports at the WINNIPEG FREE PRESS and CHRISD.CA.
News-Talk CJOB-A news anchor LORNE EDWARDS and Active Rock CJKR (POWER 97) hosts T.J. CONNORS and HOLLY BAUSMAN were named by the FREE PRESS as having exited, and CHRISD.COM adds CJOB anchor APRIL ANDERSON and Hot AC CJGV (99.1 FRESH FM) host MANDY SHAW.
The moves come amid rumors of a format change at CJKR, which has been running promos about "something big" scheduled for TODAY (1/30).
