NPR, Citing a Shortfall, Cuts 64 Workers -

NPR, Citing a Shortfall, Cuts 64 Workers - "National Public Radio, citing an unexpected revenue shortfall, said Wednesday that it would cut 64 jobs, or about 7 percent of its work force of 889, and would cancel two weekday programs, “Day to Day” and “News & Notes.”

The cutbacks, which come even as NPR is reaching what it said is a near-record audience of 26.4 million listeners a week, include 22 employees at the canceled programs, which will end March 20; six reporters and correspondents elsewhere; and one digital media position."
