ESPN Sports WEAE-A (1250 ESPN)/PITTSBURGH has cut six staffers, reports the PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE's ADRIAN MCCOY. Among those exiting were PD JIM GRACI and sports anchors EARTHA JACKSON and JOE DESTIO, along with three off-air workers.
VP/GM MIKE THOMPSON, who is assuming GRACI's PD duties in addition to his station management position, told MCCOY, "It's never easy when you do this. We saw opportunities to create some efficiencies on the business side. We're looking at creating some efficiencies with our multiple markets."
