HUBBARD/WASHINGTON, D.C. has cut four jobs at News WTOP and News WFED-A (FEDERAL NEWS RADIO), reports WASHINGTONIAN.COM. GM JOEL OXLEY e-mailed the news to staffers on FRIDAY (11/6).
Digital Chief JOHN MEYER, Evening Producer/Transporation Reporter ARI ASHE, WFED host FRANCIS ROSE and Producer Matt Wingfield exit. WASHINGTONIAN also notes, "WTOP will not fill the spot reporter ANDREW MOLLENBECK is vacating to move to LOS ANGELES, the digital position KERRY WALTER left earlier this year, or three open sales jobs."
“Our financial situation continues to be very challenging,” OXLEY wrote, adding revenue is down in several areas of advertising, and “costs that we cannot control continue to rise.”
