Al Gore’s Current TV Lays Off 80 Amid Programming Overhaul

Nov 12, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Former Vice President Al Gore’s Current TV laid off 80 full-time staffers, and began an overhaul of its programming, MediaWeek reports.

The original format of user-generated short-form programming will give way to more traditional content, including half-hour and hour programs, many of them acquisitions. Some user-generated content will be packaged in themed compilations.

Most of the staff layoffs were at Current’s L.A.-based production and programming facilities, although the channel will still produce some content in-house.
