NPR Ends Tell Me More, Cuts 28

nprNPR is canceling Tell Me More and cutting 28 staffers as part of an effort to save money. The cuts, in addition to earlier buyouts, are expected to save NPR about $7 million a year.

Michel Martin, Tell Me More’s host, and Carline Watson, the show’s executive editor, will remain at the network.

“These times require that we organize ourselves in different ways and that we’re smarter about how we address the different platforms that we reach our audiences on,” NPR’s executive VP and chief content officer Kinsey Wilson said, in a statement. “We’re trying to make the most of the resources that we have and ensure that we keep radio healthy and try to develop audience in the digital arena.”

Tell Me More’s last episode will be August 1.
