From a larger internal email, posted in its entirety here.
Today, we are announcing the cancellation of News & Notes and Day to Day, and significant budget reductions across the organization. These cuts include the elimination of 64 filled and 21 unfilled positions, many of which are associated with the two cancelled programs. Positions have also been eliminated across NPR, including reporting, editorial, and production staffs; station services; digital media; research; communications; and administrative support. Overall, this is a 7% reduction in NPR’s current workforce.
My response to this? An unsurprised “Ahhhh, shit.”
Nothing is immune to the constriction of the all-powerful world of unreal money.
