WGN-Channel 9 makes staff cuts

| 1 Comment

So what else is new in the news biz? Tribune Co.-owned WGN-Channel axed bodies on Thursday. Sources say it was yet another cost-cutting move tied to Tribune Co.'s bankruptcy filing late last year and the need practically everywhere in the broadcast industry to reduce staff to match lower ad revenue numbers. Gone from WGN this time around are reporter Jane Boal, as well as three producers and the head of human resources. The HR office, sources say, is being merged with that of the Chicago Tribune. This summer WGN is slated to merge its unionized workforce with that of non-union CLTV, which promises to be an interesting excercise. And one that could potentially become quite messy.
