CPB trims staff by 25 percent

The Corp. for Public Broadcasting on Oct. 6 unveiled a staff reorganization and said a quarter of its employees has been eliminated in the last year.

The staff cuts – which came as Republicans on Capitol Hill attempted to downsize, or “zero out,” federal funding of public broadcasting – were the result of attrition, elimination of positions and a reorganization of resources.

No CPB employees were laid off, according to spokeswoman Jeannie Bunton.

CPB now has 86 full-time staffers, compared with 114 a year ago.

The reorg leaves Carolynn Reid-Wallace, formerly senior veepee for education, in the post of senior veep for education and programming.

Also promoted were Don Marbury, director of the CPB TV Program Fund, and Peggy O’Brien, director of education programming.

Marbury and O’Brien will share the title of vice prez for programming and education.
