Court TV Fires Half of Web Staff
Court TV is firing 16 of the 31 people on its Web staff as the network, which is changing its name to truTV in January, shifts its online trial coverage to CNN.com.
The network also is eliminating six positions in operations and two in daytime.
CNN will be replacing its CNN.com/law site with CNN.com/crime. The new site will pick up trial coverage and will be managed by CNN.com staff in Atlanta.
“We will make truTV.com a popular destination, with an abundance of video content and materials exclusive to the Web,” said Marc Juris, general manager of Court TV/truTV. “Our archive of stories from crimelibrary.com will be available as well.”
