CBC eliminates 144 more jobs in new round of cuts

CBC says at least 144 more people will be out of work following yet another round of layoffs, with the West experiencing the brunt of the cuts.

Positions in the West were cut the deepest, with 37 cut from Alberta and 25 from British Columbia. Ontario lost 30 positions. Most of the reductions will occur in TV programming, as local television broadcasts have been cut from 90 minutes to either 30 or 60 minutes. McGuire also said in the letter that the company will be hiring 80 new digital positions over the next year as it grows its mobile offerings.
