NPR Lays Off 64 Employees, Axes two Shows

Audio

Tom Fudge : NPR has been spending a lot of its time reporting news on the state of the economy. And last week, NPR actually made some of that news.

A drop in corporate underwriting forced the network to cut seven percent of its staff. The primary effect that will have on KPBS listeners is the loss of the news magazine Day to Day, which follows our program every weekday at 11 a.m.

KPBS has yet to decide what program will take its place, when Day to Day is eliminated in about a month. In all, 64 positions will be cut from the NPR staff.
