Layoffs hit NBC Sports Chicago

Is ANYONE really surprised??? Sports TV has been losing audience for a while now, which is equates to LOTS of lost $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. It will only get worse. WAY worse. Just look at how the NFL league is allowing players to act at work while getting paid. Overpaid whiny snowflakes. People are ticked, BAD. So, people are tuning out and the networks are losing money. Ratings alone for NFL games are down significantly. The gravy train is coming to a slow hault. |
What I find surprising in this round of layoffs.....they laid off the son of a late comcast president who started the channel! Yikes. Looks like there are no "who ya know, who ya know" favors going on!
Another wave of layoffs hit NBC Sports Chicago Monday, as the regional sports network responded to continuing declines in subscribers and revenue.
No figures were confirmed, but sources said 12 full-time positions were eliminated, including White Sox beat writer Dan Hayes, a senior executive producer, two senior web producer/editors, a digital director, digital sales executive, associate producer, photographer and director.....
