Feder analyzes WLS firings

Robert Feder of the Sun-Times wrote a pretty good article today, analyzing WLS-AM and WZZN-FM’s firing spree on Friday, in which fourteen people lost their jobs – a dead-on piece that pretty much sums up the state of the media business today, especially radio.

And that’s not all: On top of that, Feder reported that four employees at CBS-owned WBBM-TV were let go; NBC affiliate WSAZ-TV in Charleston-Huntington, West Virginia has cut eight jobs because of expenses due to its transition to digital broadcasting; and the Hollywood Reporter stated that CW has let up to thirty employees go, and shuttered their comedy development division.
One word we’d better get use to in this business these days: layoff.
