CNN Radio Cuts 11 Positions, Reorganizes

CNNRadio_1.28.gifTVNewser has learned 11 staffers of Atlanta-based CNN Radio have been cut in a reorganization of the news network’s radio operations.

In a memo sent by CNN Radio’s director of audio programming Tyler Moody and obtained by TVNewser, Moody writes, “This type of change is difficult, especially when those impacted are our longtime colleagues and friends. I would like to thank each of you and acknowledge your work and contributions toward CNN Radio.”

While 11 staffers have been cut, new positions will be created, Moody writes.

The reorg began late last year when CNN and Westwood One, the network’s largest distributor, entered into a new multi-year deal extending their 15-year relationship. As part of the restructure, the top-of-the-hour newscast from 5 minutes to 2 minutes.

Moody writes, the “restructure will provide a dynamic mix of editorial content for the consumer and will allow the organization to take advantage of new opportunities.”
