March 5, 2009 at 5:09 AM (PT)
The CONNECTICUT SCHOOL OF BROADCASTING has abruptly shut down its operations, reports ABC affiliate WTNH-TV/NEW HAVEN, which said that students at the school's FARMINGTON, CT campus found the operation locked with a note on the door reading "We regret to inform you that CSB has shut down all operations until further notice. If you are a current student ... someone at CSB Corporate will be in contact with you in the next coming days and/or weeks."
The closing came a week before graduation for the current class, and students' demo reels were locked in the building. Teachers told WTNH that they were "all called into the office and fired; told to pack up their things and get out."
ALL ACCESS hears that the shutdown affected the school's locations nationwide.
The school's founding ROBINSON family may be reopening the school under their name, WTNH reports. The ROBINSONS sold CSB to DLJ CAPITAL GROWTH PARTNERS and KNIGHTSONE MEDIA in 2006.
