Looks like they’ve gone from annual layoffs to quarterly layoffs: Clear Channel has confirmed that a number of new job cuts have been made, in markets across the country. Six were let go in Nashville; Six in Columbus, OH; three in Oklahoma City; two in Jacksonville and Total Traffic in Minneapolis has been shut down.
In a statement, Angel Aristone, VP/Marketing & Communications, Clear Channel Media + Entertainment, tells RBR-TVBR: “We are constantly evaluating our organization and structure to make sure we are as well positioned as possible to continue to lead in the evolving marketplace. We’ve been looking closely at our business to ensure that we are properly staffed and operating as efficiently as possible with the right balance of services and personnel to meet the needs of our listeners/consumers. Like every successful business, our strategy continues to evolve as we move forward as a company and that creates some new jobs, and unfortunately eliminates others. In the process, some employees were affected. These are never easy decisions to make; we thank them for their service and wish them all the best for the future.”
