Layoff(s) at News1130?

Might be happening at CKWX/News1130. At least one on-air personality has set a socmed profile to read "former" in reference to the station.

If the axe falls, hope it spares veterans well shy of retirement. Newbies, at least, have a better chance of career reinvention. Those in the middle may find it prudent to sell their sizzle to HR staff at CBC Radio.

If this is true - you can bet they will cut the high wage earners.

I actually listened to 1130 today, for the first time in about 15 years.

Best wishes to all, and hope the rumoured cut backs are NOT true.

Again, it may be small-scale. I see one who has changed a socmed profile.
