Wall St. Journal: CC Cuts Will be Mostly in Sales

January 19, 2009 by

NEW YORK CITY - Just a few days after the New York Post confirmed there would be plenty of layoffs at Clear Channel on January 20, the Wall Street Journal reports similar findings.

A subscription is required to view the full article online, but the free preview says  Clear Channel plans to cut 7% of its U.S. workforce -- that's about 1,500 nationwide.  The WSJ says most of the cuts are believed to be in sales, but it also says CC aims to "replace more local shows with syndicated content."
