Large Scale Staff Reduction At Clear Channel/Los Angeles
February 27, 2006 at 6:04 AM (PT)
Last FRIDAY (2/24) was a difficult day for CLEAR CHANNEL/LOS ANGELES as 14 staffers, many veterans among them, in accounting, production, promotions, sales and other departments were told they no longer had jobs.
In a staff memo, CC RVP GREG ASHLOCK wrote: "As I'm sure some of you have heard, it was a difficult day here as we had to let go of some very talented, good people. The staff reduction was simply a matter of operating in a more efficient manner after consolidation. When we brought all the stations together a couple of years ago, we never really made the changes necessary to perform in a more streamlined fashion. Unfortunately, we had to move forward with some difficult decisions today to accomplish this."
