Layoffs Reported At PBS And Lee Enterprises

Two layoffs have hit the media industry in widely different areas.  

In one, PBS has laid off 24 people and eliminated seven vacant positions, according to a memo sent to the staff by PBS president and CEO Paula Kerger, according to E&P magazine.  

And, an unknown number of workers were facing loss of their jobs as Lee Enterprises closes its Winston-Salem, North Carolina printing plant, according to Triad Business Journal. The facility printed the Greensboro News & Record and the Winston-Salem Journal. These will now be published in Virginia or Tennessee.  

At PBS, Kerger wrote that the layoff decision, “while difficult, was deemed essential to ensure the organization’s long-term sustainability and effectiveness.”
