CBS Radio cuts staffers in LA


Last Friday afternoon the pink slips were flying at CBS Radio in LA—some 22 from what we’ve heard. Especially hard hit were anchors, reporters and producers at News stations KNX-AM and KFWB-AM. KFWB news bureaus in Long Beach and Orange County were also reportedly shut down as part of the cutbacks.

When asked about the cutbacks, CBS spokesperson Karen Mateo tells RBR they’ve recently realigned their senior level management in the market and "these changes follow the new structure designed to unify the functionality and optimal synergies across the seven stations."
