Layoffs And Cutbacks at PBS NewsHour (NYT)
The PBS NewsHour, the signature nightly newscast on public television, is planning its first significant round of layoffs in nearly two decades. Because of declines in support from corporate sponsors, the show’s producer, MacNeil/Lehrer Productions, will close the two offices it has outside of the Washington area — in Denver and San Francisco — and lay off most of the employees there. The company, which is based in Arlington, Va., will also eliminate several of what it calls “noncritical production positions” at its main office. TVNewser None of the affected staffers were named in the email, but TVNewser hears that one of those departing is San Francisco correspondent Spencer Michels, who started reporting for the program 30 years ago. While the program will still maintain in-house crews, the NewsHour will rely more on freelance contributions going forward. Poynter / MediaWire “We believe the staff restructuring and production changes, along with continuing Web investment, will make us stronger and enable us to be more effective and nimble,” NewsHour public relations manager Anne Bell writes in an email to Poynter. Deadline Hollywood It will be the show’s first major round of layoffs since the mid-‘90s.
