If you’re working for the Weather Channel, look out for the falling ax. Kristi Swartz at the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports:
Weather Channel lays off staff
The Weather Channel, which NBC Universal bought in September, has laid off some of its staff. It is unclear how many people were cut or whether they are receiving a severance package.
NBC Universal and Weather Channel officials would not comment beyond a statement.
“The economic realities of recent months have created challenges for everyone in our business. In addition, when NBC Universal purchased the Weather Channel earlier this year, we expected that there would be cost synergies as part of company reorganization. While it is always difficult to lose valued employees, we are doing our best to minimize the impact, and remain committed to providing the highest quality content that our viewers have come to expect from the Weather Channel.”
