Staff Cuts At ABC News Radio
October 6, 2009 at 2:13 PM (PT)
ALL ACCESS has confirmed that ABC NEWS RADIO has let go an unspecified number of staffers, primarily writers, engineers and managers. No on-air anchors appear to have been included in the cuts, and a source tells ALL ACCESS that the moves are not expected to affect affiliate service or the on-air lineup. The cuts follow the departure of Director/Special Events and Sports PETER SALINGER and Executive Director/News and Sports ROBERT GARCIA.
The source said that the network will continue to feed the same number of newscasts and the same amount of news audio and will continue to provide two-ways for affiliates despite the staff cutbacks.
