Layoffs At WGN Chicago

At least five employees—four from the newsroom—have been cut at WGN 9, Chicago’s CW affiliate. One was Jane Boal, a general assignment and feature reporter perhaps best known for being hit by a car in 1999 while reporting live for the channel, reports Phil Rosenthal at the Chicago Tribune.

The station said it was responding to the economic climate and media revenue picture.

The Tribune Company, which owns both the Chicago Tribune as well as WGN, is still going ahead with its $13 million bonus payments to over 700 employees.
