NPR Lays Off Reporters

Posted by Amy J. Ruiz on Wed, Dec 10, 2008 at 12:41 PM

Sad news via Media Bistro about NPR: "The final number of cuts will be 65."

More here: "Confronted by an uncertain economy and a sharp decline in current and projected revenues from corporate underwriting, NPR today announced that it will reduce its workforce by 7 percent and cut expenses. The difficult moves come despite NPR reaching near-record audience levels on-air and online, with 26.4 million people listening to NPR programs each week and 8 million people visiting NPR.org each month."
