Jul 14, 2011  •  Post A Comment

PBS is trimming its staff by cutting some current staffers and opting not to fill some vacancies, reports Current.org, a blog about public media.

PBS will cut 13 current staff positions and eliminate eight vacancies, the report says.

PBS President Paula Kerger said in a letter on July 13: "This was not an easy decision to make, and we wish our departing staff the best as they pursue other opportunities.”

Six "new or restructured" positions will be added, including two new vice presidents of general audience programming who will support PBS’s prime-time lineup revamp, the story says.
